AbstractI'll revisit some ideas that motivated us to propose an exploratory project in collaboration with UNITN-DISI. The context is that of complex STS, such as an hospital system. The problem we focus on is harmonious adaptation. What we'd like to investigate is  design methods for harmonious adaptivity, building on a background that includes virtual world techniques, models  of  human - smart object interaction, and evolutionary design techniques.

Abstract: In this seminar, I will try to present some works applying the quantum theory at the macro level. I will present a bit of theory to understand some quantum phenomenon and show how it applies also to systems far away from the particle-world, closer to what we are used to work with. The aim of this presentation is to make an introductory step in the quantum theory to feed ideas for the SE domain.
