Our values

Science of the people, for the people.


During the Renaissance, a fervent revival of interest in the past reshaped the approach to history, leading to a profound transformation in how the accumulated human knowledge was perceived and utilized. Scholars and collectors avidly sought out ancient manuscripts and classical texts, recognizing the wisdom they contained as a beacon guiding them through the challenges of their time. The recovery and translation of works by ancient philosophers, scientists, and historians not only expanded the intellectual horizons of Renaissance thinkers but also provided invaluable insights into the complexities of human existence. This resurgence of interest in antiquity fueled a cultural reawakening, as Renaissance intellectuals drew upon the lessons of the past to navigate the tumultuous waters of their era.

The Renaissance approach to history serves as a timeless reminder of the enduring value of ancient wisdom in confronting contemporary difficulties. By mining the riches of the past, Renaissance scholars were able to tap into a wealth of knowledge that transcended the limitations of their own time. Similarly, in the digital age, we stand at the new frontier, of a new era where the vast repositories of human knowledge are more accessible than ever before. Through initiatives such as digital libraries, open-access repositories, and collaborative research networks, we have the opportunity to harness the collective wisdom of humanity to address the pressing challenges of the 21st century. However, it should be also noted that digital copies have their own type of fragility. The very nature of that new phenomenon will require innovative ways of thinking.

The Future of History

Looking forward, envision a future where the Renaissance spirit of historical inquiry is woven into the fabric of technological innovation. Just as Renaissance scholars meticulously cataloged and preserved ancient manuscripts, imagine a world where AI algorithms sift through vast digital archives, reading and recombining them, thus uncovering forgotten insights and connecting disparate strands of knowledge. By integrating historical perspectives into the design and development of emerging technologies, we can ensure that our creations are grounded in a deep understanding of the past, imbued with the wisdom of centuries. In this vision of the future, the Renaissance approach to history becomes not just a relic of the past, but a guiding principle shaping the trajectory of human progress in the digital age.
