  9. 9. NeXT | Other software solutions: ProLED ProLED | Design and mechanical calculation of power lines ProLED, which stands for “Progettazione Linee Elettriche di Distribuzione” (Design of power distribution lines) is a computer- based system created for the mechanical testing of medium- and low-voltage power lines in compliance with CEI-11-4-1998, CEI- 11-4-2011 and CEI EN 50341-2-13. ProLED supports designers of power lines in the creation of new projects; it also makes it possible to check existing lines, assessing the suitability of parts present. 9
  10. 10.  Our interest at the moment is mainly aimed at:  Jk  Machine learning  Chat bot  Smart glasses NeXT | WORK IN PROGRESS 10 Machine learning: through the great flow of data, it forms the basis for the creation of algorithms that can learn and make predictions and, finally, make decisions. Chat bot: Big data and machine learning will allow the development of a more advanced Human2Machine communication, thanks to the understanding of natural language.Smart glasses: these innovative devices will lead to a revolution both in human work and in the reduction of waste of time and improvement of efficiency. Artificial Intelligence Artificial Intelligence Internet of things
  11. 11. The application systems developed by NeXT are based on cutting-edge Agent technology. Every software module is created as an agent, developed to pursue its aim. The user interfaces are graphically pleasing and highly ergonomic. Web potential has made it possible to integrate functional, sleek graphic tools..
