FCA’s e-Mobility at Visionary Days 2019
On November 23, the third edition of Visionary Days will take place. This innovative event, organized by young people for young people, is aimed at creating an environment where people from different backgrounds can meet up, talk and create, as a group, their own concept for the future.
This event combines the communicative aspects of a conference with the interactivity and creative challenge of a "hackathon". This is a kind of convocational get-together where, for a fixed period of time, its numerous participants will gather together to find solutions to problems, or to put forward their own ideas and suggestions.
For the first time ever Visionary Days will take place in two locations simultaneously. These are the "Officine Grandi Riparazioni" in Turin and the "Palazzo Ducale" in Genoa. Consequently, this will launch the first European event of its kind: a ten-hour meet-up experience, lasting from 9.30 to 19.30, and taking place in two separate locations hundreds of kilometers apart, but which are still connected to each other the whole time. This will be just like one big round table.
The event has been organized by an association established by, and made up of, a group of students from the Polytechnic University of Turin. Visionary Days is a highly innovative experiment, of which Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is an indispensable partner with its e-mobility division.
Numbering over 1,500, the participants of Visionary Days will be distributed between 120 tables, which will each be coordinated by a moderator, with a variety of different topics being discussed: Resources, Inhabitants, Finances and New Earth. In addition to these, meetings dedicated to discussing e-Mobility in Smart Cities will take place.
The results will be aggregated and processed by the Visionary Days artificial intelligence feature, "Lee". This is a technology platform, connected virtually to all the tables, and which will process the ideas emerging from each one of these, in real time, displaying them instantly in both rooms.
FCA and its e-Mobility division will continue with its contribution the following week, on the 30 November in fact, at the Mirafiori Heritage Hub at the FCA site in Turin. Here, the 120 table moderators will participate in an exclusive session exploring views on e-mobility, and undertaking team work on visionary projects for sustainable mobility.
