Federico Pistono is a writer, entrepreneur, researcher, and public speaker. He holds a BSc in Computer Science from the University of Verona, and he's a graduate of Singularity University, NASA Ames Research Park.

He has co-founded four startups—two in Italy and two in the US—in the fields of e-learning, media production and distribution, wireless communication technology, and has consulted on technology and innovation for governments and Fortune 500 companies across the world.

In 2012 he wrote the book "Robots Will Steal Your Job, But That's OK: How to Survive the Economic Collapse and be Happy", which became an international success, published in English, Spanish, German, Italian, Portuguese, Korean, and Chinese.

Federico routinely tours around the world, lecturing on exponential technologies and their economic impact on society at universities, Fortune 500 companies, conferences and symposia; such as the University of San Paolo, Qualcomm, Telenor, Allianz, the University of Oslo, the International Education and Resource Network Summit, TEDxVienna, and Singularity University. He was interviewed by several newspapers, radios, TVs, and magazines, among which are the BBC, The Wall Street Journal, The Financial Times, Vice Magazine, The Huffington Post, Folha de S. Paulo, Canale 5 and Rai 3 (Italian National TV); while he wrote for CNBC, WIRED, the Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies, the Corriere della Sera, and Forbes Magazine.
