New technologies and data management (2021/2022)
The teaching is organized as follows:
1° periodo lezioni (1A)
1° periodo lezioni (1B)
The course is included in the learning area on New Technologies and Data Management. The course aims at providing students with basic knowledge in computer science and statistical analysis concerning new technologies, to allow the operational management of fundamental tools such as technologies, digital systems and, data on which to set legal responses. The learning focuses both on the in-depth study of the basic mechanisms that govern the programming and functioning of the main computer and digital technologies used in society, in a way that is understandable to a jurist, with particular regard to the challenges they pose in terms of security, reliability, transparency, obsolescence, and the main methods of statistical analysis of data used by companies and institutions that are essential to make rational and informed legal choices.
At the end of the course, the student will have acquired the ability to understand the basic functioning of a computer system, its limits and its potential, with particular reference to SW systems and systems based on artificial intelligence. By applying the basic tools of statistics and probability theory in a methodologically rigorous way, the student will also acquire the ability to understand the mechanisms of selection and production of data and their implications in terms of treatment, analysis, and interpretation.
The student will acquire the ability to face and solve real problems in the professional context in which he/she will operate, with particular reference to computer systems for data management, systems designed to support decisions and problems related to the safety and reliability of these systems, problems related to the responsibility of the designer and user. He/she will also be able to render a correct interpretation of statistical information, identifying the limits, the criticalities and the potentialities that characterize the data he/she will have to analyze. He/she will be able to assess the impact of a computer system within a company or public or private body, or in communities and social networks, as well as to use statistical information to support the analysis and understanding of problems and the decisions that may result, in written and oral form, also through group work, written exercises, and the Problem Based Solving method (PBS), the solution of concrete issues, using the appropriate and specific disciplinary vocabulary, adopting the correct lines of reasoning and argumentation, making independent decisions. The teaching method used is functional to the continuous learning and updating of acquired knowledge.
