Happy Easter from SPX Lab Team

Easter 2020 is approaching, this year it will be different, far from come of our loved ones, but virtually brought together by technology. We have reacted, imagining Italy in six months, inside and outside the borders of the nation, and with some of our partners we have developed ideas, from "live commerce", to the defense of women at this time of lockdown, to "business matching” platform for export, to an app for monitoring the dynamics associated with COVID-19. Many of which will become proposals and, we hope, projects. From the first moments of this emergency, to protect the health of SPX Lab, we decided to adopt 100% smartworking; it was easy for us who have been working with smartworking since 2010 ... but looking around we immediately realized that the situation was not as easy: many companies were unprepared - smartworking is a mentality not only a set of digital tools - and others that smartworking could not have adopted, logistics companies for example. We therefore made ourselves available to provide free help for those who needed smart and agile work methods and digital marketing to overcome the physical limits of the lockdown. We have thus produced our own free downloadable e-book. For several weeks we have been supporting online teaching: we monitor the performance of applications and servers, we are thinking about new developments so that students do not miss school education. Almost 3000 students are constantly connected to our servers on which Zanichelli learning tools are used. For us it is a great success, but the real challenge will be to equip ALL students with technology and overcome the "digital divide", too many in fact still lack it. At the beginning of the lockdown, we made some recommendations by preparing an infographic for a more aware use of remote applications in the hypothesis that the whole world would switch to teleworking mode and that this could saturate the calculation skills. The recommendations have been implemented by C3I, CNI and the Council Presidency. SPX Lab does not stop, in compliance with the decrees, we do it for us, for our customers and for our partners. This situation has allowed all the members of SPX Lab to really understand the core values of the team and the company, the distance has made us even closer. We will continue to make our values available to the community so that everyone can start again with a new strategy and vision of the world. We wish a happy Easter to all.

SPX Lab part of BackOnTrack: App against Covid-19

SPX Lab becomes part of a team of companies for the creation of an app to control the spread of COVID-19, merging some principles of an internal idea into a larger project, involving user experience, communication and architecture highly scalable app/server. A federation of applications monitored by the central government is expected to be developed in the coming weeks, we do hope to join this cluster; together with the fundamental contributions of Netalia, To Be srl, Beta 80 Group, Italtel and Helpy.

1 Year in 1 Day: web interviews with students and graduates

SPX Lab was present among the companies, at the meeting organized by the Polytechnic School of the University of Genoa "1 Year in 1 Day": one-year of interviews in one day. The event, held remotely because of the recent shut down, was an opportunity for students and graduates to confront with leading companies and evaluate job opportunities, during the Covid19 emergency.

An app to monitor and study the Covid19 spread

We have tried to make our contribution as UX and IT applications designers, developing a vertical project idea on COVID-19, which fits into the spectrum of digital systems that are now being developed to contain contagions. We make it public hoping that it can be a starting point for help: the project is a simple and intuitive mobile application, useful for collecting data to measure the spread of Covid19. The application plans to be used as a movement monitoring tool to combat the pandemic, and will be complete with a visualization dashboard for operators who are containing the virus in the latest hours. The project will be presented today to the competent authorities if they find it useful. SPX Lab has chosen to address the main need of this emergency and try to help analyze the unexpected emergency situation; focusing on effectiveness for operators, ease of use and total respect for user privacy.

IMATI research project: the collaboration with the artist Michelangelo Pistoletto

The research project in collaboration with the Ceramics Museum of Savona, the Municipality of Genoa and the National Research Council is in progress. As part of the research project for the enhancement of contemporary art, we met the artist Michelangelo Pistoletto, author of the work Terzo Paradiso and great author with whom we are proud to start a collaboration. Terzo Paradiso/Third Paradise, is a reformulation of the mathematical sign of infinity. The two opposite circles represent nature and artifice and the central one, their conjunction, the womb of rebirth.

SAVE THE WOMAN: the app to prevent gender-based violence

The SAVE THE WOMAN application, a SPX Lab project that aims to be a preventive tool against gender violence, was presented on February 7th in Savona, at the Sibilla room of Priamar. The application is unique in its kind because it acts before the woman is aware of the risk, alerting the victim through an accurate test assessed by artificial intelligence.
To stay updated on the project's news and progresses, subscribe to the newsletter from the website: www.savethewoman.org
