Starting in June 2012 “Creativity: innovative models of production and access” is an initiative to systematize the investigation on new models of creative production and accesses to cultural material which seek a new balance between economic sustainability of the cultural sector and access to knowledge for society, as a way to stimulate creativity on all scales.

A Publication of Word-Information Institute

These engines are never just practical tools to deal with information overload. Such cognitive technologies embed political philosophy in seemingly neutral code.
