It may seem like stating the obvious, but children should be children. Unfortunately, child labor is a sad but widespread reality. It has always been found particularly in disadvantaged contexts in which they are forced to work so they and their families can survive. According to the International Labor Organization (ILO), around 152 million children between the ages of 5 and 17 are victims of child labor in the world. Most work in farming, followed by the services and industrial sectors, particularly in mines. Figures which, as the ILO itself and UNICEF warn, could increase due to the poverty related to the COVID-19 crisis. By definition child labor is any kind of activities which is mentally, physically, socially or ethically dangerous for children. The worst cases of child labor include those that put the child's health, safety or morality at risk. Still, with the onset of new technology child labor is gradually changing its face. Children should be entitled to access quality education and develop through the power of play anywhere in the world. But you cannot call it play if you can make money out of that! Children are among the biggest stars of the web, earning millions through influencer deals with blue-chip brands or game platforms and social network’s partner programs, which gives creators a cut of ad revenues. Indeed, they have a major influence on other children who try to emulate them in every possible way. The “Kidinfluencers” phenomenon is taking over mostly in developed countries. But, is kidfluencing work? Some parents of influencers point out that the kids are just having fun or are barely conscious of what they are doing (brilliant and terrifying at the same time Julia Carrie Wong for The Guardian https://www.theguardian.com/media/2019/apr/24/its-not-play-if-youre-making-money-how-instagram-and-youtube-disrupted-child-labor-laws ). The boundary between innocent childish leisure and work imposed by parents is very thin especially when considering that every dollar a kid earns belong to his parents since they don’t even own their social media accounts. Many platforms ban children under thirteen from having accounts, which means that no pre-teen stars own the accounts to which the platform pays a share of advertising revenue. Influencer arrangements – in which brands pay influencers to post a photo or video of themselves promoting a product – take place off platform, and are presumably negotiated by parents. So, in a provocative comparison, can be claimed that online platforms are the modern mines? So much is said about “Kidinfluencers” phenomenon not only to safeguard children’s privacy but also to protect them from exploitation with special laws. Indeed, for these children all of this is more than just fun and games. It is a multimillion-dollar market which badly hides huge economic interests. “Kidinfluencers”, although celebrities, remain above all minors to protect, the same protection that their 'follower' peers, bewitched by this incredible success, deserve. Indeed, the isolation imposed by the current pandemic situation has made web addiction much worse. negg is strongly opposed to the exploitation of child labor in all forms even if on online platforms. For this very reason it is crucial that online platforms deliver more information on current legislation. Fight against the commercial exploitation of the image of minors and avoiding contents that are detrimental to their dignity as well as physical and psychological integrity is a duty that all IT operators should give priority, always and however.

A new accomplishment for negg®! On the occasion of the Day of Openness (Giornata della Trasparenza), the “Prizes for Innovation 2019 (Premi per l'innovazione 2019)” final competition took place in the headquarters of the Chamber of Commerce in Reggio Calabria. During an intense session of speed pitching, a shortlist of twelve companies have been competing in the final stage reporting to a technical committee. Each Company has presented an innovative project consistent with the initiative Industry 4.0 National Plan ("Piano Impresa 4.0"). The Board’s assessment has taken into account three different criteria: the innovative potential of the initiative, consistency in the proposal with Industry 4.0 National Plan ("Piano Impresa 4.0") and the extent to which the project has already been implemented. At the end of the competition, six companies have been awarded: negg® s.r.l., Anti-Seismic Innovative Solutions and Materials s.r.l., Kaliot s.r.l., BIG s.r.l., Innovation Made s.r.l., MADE Concept s.r.l. negg® s.r.l. has presented a proposal focuses on BigData Analytics, Machine Learning and Deep Learning to develop a new generation of SOC (Security Operations Center), a game-changing idea and breakthrough innovation. In fact, at the present moment, all the existing SOC are able to perform only the detached phase, but none of them is so highly integrative and able to identify the author of the attack. For this very reason the SOC that negg® aim at developing is highly innovative (an actual new generation of SOC) because it will not be able just to detect and block threats but also to identify the person who has struck the attack. About the award, Francesco Taccone, CEO of negg®, has said: "For negg® this year has been full of great successes and satisfaction. The constant commitment and passion that we put every day in our work allow us to create top quality products and advance the requirements of the increasingly challenging, ever-changing and relentlessly fast cyber market. The year seemed to be over and… there comes another accomplishment for negg®.  I would, therefore, like to thank all the staff who have worked to reach this goal and especially, our engineers Paolo Russo and Rossella Oliva and our chief administrative officer Marianna Abenavoli. A special thanks also to our interns Paolo Grossetti and Jacopo Carloni both from Marche Polytechnic University who are helping to implement new features to the proposed project”. About the competition, Antonino Tramontana, President of the Chamber of Commerce of Reggio Calabria, has declared: “The Prizes awarded and, collectively, all the innovative projects that we have reviewed, offer us an interesting picture of our business community where the digital transformation 4.0. has already been completed or is in progress. We are definitely aware that there are several enterprises ready for the digital leap in our territory, with the backing of the Chamber of Commerce, they will be able to reach the same level of the companies involved in the competition today”.
