Sergio Minniti is currently a Postdoc Researcher at the Department of Mathematics, Computer Science and Physics (DMIF) at the University of Udine, where I am researching Artificial Intelligence (AI) for a project entitled “Human beings and artificial ‘intelligences’: analysis of an evolving relationship.”

He has been a post-doc researcher at the Department of Philosophy, Sociology, Education and Applied Psychology (FISPPA) at the University of Padova, where he has researching in the area of Industry 4.0 for a project entitled “Digital Innovation in the Context of SMEs: A Transdisciplinary Approach”, which is funded by F.A.I.V. Federazione Artigiani Imprenditori Vicentini.

Between 2017 and 2019 he participated in the Horizon 2020 project entitled “EULAC Focus: Giving Focus to the Cultural, Scientific and Social Dimension of EU-CELAC Relations” (http://eulac-focus.net/), where he investigated the digital transformation of scientific work, the evolution of open access publishing in Latin America, and the networks of scientific collaboration between European and Latin American countries.

During this period, he held the position of Lecturer at the School of Mathematical and Computational Sciences at the University of Experimental Technological Research Yachay Tech, Ecuador, where he taught a laboratory course focusing on social innovation and critical engineering.
