NIRIS has become the reference point of software production for managing alarms on technologically advanced plants.
It is confirmed by TRENTiNO iNDUSTRiALE too, the bimonthly magazine edited by Confindustria Trento.
The article was published on the periodical of Dicember2020-March2021 and tells the interview to Andrea Turso. The owner and founder is committed since 2013 to constantly add value to the offered services and motivates the young employers to the curiosity of going into new sectors.

From the 4th to the 6th of November it was held the annual conference of MetroAgriFor on the well-known theme "metrology for agriculture and forestry". This year the fair took place among the streets of our main town and Niris strongly wanted to partecipate to the project. One of the field we are involved in is smart farming.

You'll find our brand on the website among sponsors, while here below a short brochure that represents what we do.

sustainability becomes art

We are proud to have contributed to the realization of this ecosustainable project of the pianist Isabella Turso. The movie of the the new single "Sliding Doors" is set inside MUSE - Museo delle scienze (Museum of science) of Trento and it's completely related to sustainability. For example the dress weared by the composer is entirely made of recycled inner tubes of bycicles and scooters.

He tell us how Niris is born and what we're involved in: water and energy.

GPT-2 Model trained & fine-tuned with DSM: Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.

"GPT-2 is a large transformer-based language model with 1.5 billion parameters, trained on a dataset of 8 million web pages. GPT-2 is trained with a simple objective: predict the next word, given all of the previous words within some text."

We trained GTP-2 model of OpenAI using the “Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of mental disorders (DSM)”. To do that, we used the Google Cloud service (thanks to the Nvidia Tesla T4), Tensorflow and the medium 355M (6.07) model.

During the tuning phase we trained the model using the text of DSM manuals starting from the edition of 1952, that we prepared and structured for the project.

The results were surprising as you can see in some examples reported on this page.

This exercise let us prove and study tools and models that today represent the state of art, but first of all it gave us the opportunity to ask ourselves questions about the use of these technologies.

Even if we are far from practical applications, the results are definitely evocative and make us think.

Here is an example of text generated from the trained model, completely unsupervised::

: "The problem is not with the individual, but rather with the social norms of his or her culture."

Evocative, isn’t it? The more interesting fact of the model is that it clearly proves how is possible to make tasks of NLP - Natural Language Processing as comprehension and text synthesis without explicit supervision.

In the next future Natural Language Processing technologies will let us develop interfaces for operators and chatbot able to synthetize and create text in a specific field. In this way we have already started some experimentations of GPT-2 model and results are hopeful.

A "Mile or Level" Approach to Classification of Individuals G [62] refers to a system of hierarchical categorical categorization that is part of DSM Organization's grand strategy to map and categorize humanity according to a set of categorical dogmas and limitations of reference. Within each of these groups, there exists an "A" according to which each individual takes part in a particular domain, brings up an awareness that includes all aspects of humanity (intellectual, emotional, perceptual, sociocultural), and embodies one of the six broad dogmatic concepts of pathological functioning (Stokes 2009:310-311). Speech must be distinguished from acute alteregration (presence, rigidity, or quibbling), a feature common to all of the schizophrenia disorders, which are subtypes of one another (Schizophrenia, pathological functioning, discourse).

In a general society, ordinary human sorrow and misery is regarded as an inconvenient and a source of suffering, and the individual's capacity to feel it is grossly under stood up as "not belonging." When, for example, a family member is feeling unusually sad, the individual may very well conclude that their grief is not truly "hard on the bum." . (SIC!)
