the next speaker is Carlo d'Alesio and he is the man behind that weird violet something machine behind you and he will talk to us about fragmented nutrition thank you everybody Thank you Netsoc for having us here my intervention represents the work of a team of course we are going to deep dive into smaller stuff so from above the clouds and the overall vision of Davids and Mr Lightman we are going to look at a tool to be used from single persons for communities in order to answer to the question How can single people in a networked society work and produce useful information and produce for themselves and for their community so most of the people saw and say today Oh what a beautiful landscape Ok so if you look it just from the turist point of view Yes it is beautiful if you look it from the food chain point of view is a mess so everything, the source of food is outside the cities tiny roads you can even see them actually so fragmented logistics invading the city packaging polution and trucks driving on the other hand if you look it from the energy harvesting point of view like Mr Lightman intervention what I see is a desert Actually from the energy harvesting what I see is a desert from the food chain perspective what I see is a mess So where is the... Let's go deep So this is one among many to be honest this is ours but this is one among many Phytodrones what is a Phytodrone? ok? so a Phytodrone is more than a grow box and a Phytodrone is made from other stuff you don't see here in the physical object so in this picture here are the example we brought you here today because this is made of chips, stuff, alluminium drivers, LED's ect and information so basically it is a machine let's say an almost intelligent machine who is able to control all the vital parameters for growing your plants wether they be medical, wether they be for food wether they are used for genetics or bacteria research and accademic accademical programs and research so what the machine does is executing a program which replicates an environment, so this environment is made of humidity, temperature, irrigation cycles and of course lighting cycles and we will see what does it mean later on so Phytodrone is a technology so it is a tool, is a tool for the single and for the community as well So today is a mostly acceptable sunny day but just think about the geography of the world so we are pretty lucky in Italy but there are a lot of areas with a very limited solar power patterns around the world So this is what we call a geographical barrier also, information is a barrier because, how do you use technology in order to empower people I mean, one of our ideas is that maybe one day the average Joh will not be sit on the couch, being scared by TV but the average Joh will be a much more evoluted person so at least that's something we hope so and then we had up until today because in the last year we have and maybe you saw them online a rise of various producers who are into Phytodrones we had these technological barriers which was represented by lightning technologies because before the LED and before the what we call solid state lighting which is commonly know as LED's and lasers and other stuff basically lighting was developed and implemented for us, for the human eye for us to be able to see the recent experiments of LED technologies actually made possible tailored applications for other photoreceptores because we are not alone in this planet such us plants for example So even though I'm personally a lightining specialist So I have no doubt that the humans will never be able to replicate the sun spectrum, ok? this is something which is given and something really tricky to be reproduced what we had up until now was the sun and the artificial light sources so this an example of emission of conventional light sources and then over the years other technologies came in so, these are fixed spectrum the problem, this is the sun which gives us almost everything we need and these are the absorption patterns of the photosynthetic activities of a plant what is possible now, is to with phytodrones and with LED technology and with proper coding, to reproduce the very important part of the solar spectrum which plants use for photosynthesis just give you an example we do not have a green Peach here basically the leaf you saw before screaming because it's reflecting into your eyes the radation okay also the LED's technologies meant that less heat is generated into the the growing chambre so the the growing chambre basically can be smaller you can have it in your home You can do a single model for yourself but then you can figure out the technology on how to skate for communities and for research and this here this area here is that funky lets say light you see there that pinkish light is actually the addition of the spectre whish is, let's say, what the plane needs to properly growth this is going too deep actually, so we had technology Period, okay So, technology is for the technologists so we have another barrier, so we, um, we destroyed the geographical barrier so night time, no problems harsh environmental side, deserts, cities, underground, um, metros, it's gone okay! We have the technology, um, we destroyed the geographical barrier The last important thing, probably the most important one is knowledge, okay, so one of the other pillars that he talked about before, um, this is a machine okay ! So before that is a parametric machine, so, it does have an interface and it does have parameters which you can set, so, you basically have your garden and your plants and for each phase of the plants like cycle, okay you can set temperature, humidity, ph, lightning settings, night times, day times. Well that might seem complicated and pricky um, but basically we developed an interface to let the majority of people easily configure these stuff but if you have parameters, you have control and then you have also language because at the end of the game, you can save your growing program if you are happy with it you your cultivation in order to repeat it or you can share it with other users, who own the same machine, so if you are a user who have the will and the knowledge to set up such a machine you are free to configurate by yourself and to test and find in your performance and you'll contribute to raise the bar to the machine performance so the human who is raising the bar of the machine performance which is different from the opposite On the other hand if you are a user who has basically the will but not the knowledge to operate such a machine you can rely on the crowd source information, you just download a file from the community, who is suitable for your specie, and this is how we believe is a sustainable skin for imagining technologies so again this about fragmented nutrition and powering also the average job So, by technology and also by knowledge on another scale, that is a cast of everything I have told you about, all the project is open source by the way and online we have the repository with the source files so everything is open, hardware and software period I forgot this very important aspect, so, on another hand, we scaled up this technology platform for academic research and this is a custom order we carried out by request of the italian national museum of Scienza technology Leonardo Da Vinci in Milan we just made Meg's big brother so it's actually 2.5 meters in height and has this control pannel here which is just the replica of what you will find on your mobile device tablet or smart phone, for using this MEG and they are using it in the genetic laboratory because they basically store data and when they have to repeat to give parameters to one of their process then they go back and they renalyse it so they have a platform of data information they are also using it for formation for example, and for furthur extending knowledge actually, couple of catches lights, let's say for, what is about to come, of course that's provocative so um this is about as many of you know, integrating the let's say contain environment so micro environment for having sustainable spaceship or space colonisation in which as NASA stated 6 or 8 months ago, actually they found that it's something also useful for the emotion of the cosmo astronauts so cultivating something which is living with you in this kind of harsh environment in something that is useful also for your psychology and again, another picture of an hypothisis of an extra-terrestrial systems replicating a micro climate is another of the keys so of this kind of system so basically, you can do it on earth, like for example: starting and replicating an african climate, and put it into a chamber in th US for example, so you can do it geographically, but we'd like to think that in order to progress to the future, you have to look back at the past, so we had input from researches, actually we are working also with Italian universities, so, along with the museum we are working for the Agronomy faculty of Milan, which is one of the most permanent in Italy one of the, is there a way to replicate an environment conditions? which are gone. So micro climate which are no longer here in order to making possible some research which was not possible few years ago thank you ! I'm done. Do you have any questions ? So questions, come on you have seen the dinosaurs Oh there is one there ! Hi, as you say that we are in Italy and we have the sun normally so why casalinga di voghera should buy a block for feto plants, Are there normal uses case for it ? Thank you Literally, we are talking about existing machines that nowadays maybe used for high evaluable crops which nowadays can not be the case of a tomato or a basil okay ? but one day maybe so today we do have plants that have sense to be grown there okay! One day things may change, again, this is not just about the machine this is about the empowering process of the user okay ? this is one way in which we can actually elevate maybe in some aspects the Casalinga de voghera that I do not believe that you can start an entire implant on politics starting from the Casalinga de voghera to be honest because it's a weak starting point, so maybe one of the aim of network society maybe also the one to start from people in order to elevate them so starting from the people themselves so going back to your question, I hope you got the message so maybe one day tomato would be valuable also, to give you a practical example, I will talk about legal drug plants in the US for example which are worth the cost and the operation of the machine nowadays or collecters plants or rare plants for high handed retaurations so something which is worth the cost and the hastle for today, tomorrow maybe more communities would be worth the hastle and of course the technology about this kind of machines will enable people to have less expensive machine and automatique user experiences to have them to be operated as easily as possible. We will try to answer all of the questions, so I ask you to keep the questions short and the answers as well Okay, as you know environment is not only light environment is made of gas, soil, and soil nutrition. How do you deal with those things ? We have 2 versions, even though lightning is accountable for 55% of the the development of a plant in such an environment, the other stuff are monitored and you can operate on this. For example, the first light I showed you is: the open source version which we have online it is based on soil cultivation and you have a central irrigation system with a pump which is centralized in the brain of the machine you can set up the frequency of the distribution of the irrigation and we have an upgrade which allows you on an MPK skiing of nutrition also to dilute into the water the MPK nutrients okay! so you can regulate the time, the intensity and the nutrient distribution into the irrigation part almost the same, i am trying to be concise, it is happening here in this machine, which is hydroponic so it's another style. so we have sensors to give the machine feedback okay! and then we have controllers to give inputs to the plant we are doing this with the easy monitoring and the Ph monitoring in the hydroponic version and then we have temperature censure, it's an an agglomerate of existing technology okay ? it is something that raises from the arising technologies So, having a cheap censure or cheap LED is almost the same so everything comes from a platform of existing technologies but maybe we can have a chat later on the machine I know there is a question over there, and it will be the last one How much will it cost me to build my own machine ? So, let's say that what you are seeing here, is a less powerful version something were thinking for consumer great general public, which should be around 2k the one you will find as an open source on the website It will take you from 2 to 3K but it's a very, let's say high hand, kind of machine online you have everything, you have mechanics, electrical schemes, build of material list of online retailers and this will cost you except for your work let's say from 2 to 3k but, the wide consumer version, let's say it's one block, to be honest with open source publication the one you see on the website is scalable, so you have the shelf in which indipendent from the light engine which is indipendent from the growing platforms so you can dilute your economic effort in many steps, so it is not something designed for anyhting you see hangs in rows unsteady as you saw in the first light, it is off the shelf compoints easy to find, affordable, period. um, and it's scalable investment wise let's say Thank you Carlo!
