In the 2017 edition, the “Forms of the Future” slogan for the Festival will act as a framework for the themes of digital innovation and the world of the Net. IF2017 will propose solutions, describe perspectives, products and services that will be part of our near future.
Moreover, the 2017 edition will focus on the theme of our keyword #sentiment. The online community is a microcosm rich in #opinions, #feelings and #thoughts that is currently, thanks to the latest technological tools, undergoing a socio-anthropological exploration capable of capturing the orientations, directions and trends of its inhabitants. Using #sentiment to interpret the digital revolution can reveal political moods, social or cultural movements, and economic trends that drive our everyday reality and characterise the contemporary world.
#sentiment analysis, the “subjective” view of information, offers a way to understand #relationship patterns and the interests of individual communities. Algorithms turn into #sentiments, understood as ways of thinking and perceiving the surrounding reality. Sentiment analysis investigates how we #accept/#react to emotional/verbal/visual prompts, through to the most extreme manifestations.
