Event Details

SAS Conference has been imagined as the conclusive step in the first phase of the SAS project: a whole morning dedicated to experiencing the results achieved through the Smart Agents in the first occasion of the collaborative training which involved the city of Turin. An immersive experience in data visualization which, in HER’s style, unites arts, science and technology.
