Alex and Sara’s Story

Students from the Liceo Brotzu in Cagliari explain the risks of deepfakes.

Notwithstanding our efforts, it looks like AI is still not capable of substituting a human staff … so for a series of logistical mistakes, our project officer, Debora Cavallo ended up managing the first leg of the hackathon tour organised for the tenth edition of Coding Girls on her own [see news: The Inclusive Intelligence of Young Women]. However, as resoluteness is the ABC of a non-profit, Debora rolled up her sleeves and used her experience to do it all. “It was a very pleasant and stimulating hackathon and the students worked well,” she says. “Surely, the fact that the students were supported by university tutors was a plus. They were all very competent, careful, and helpful. They provided precious help both to me and to the participants. The event was also stimulating for the students; in general, there were no problems.”
