Summer is sea time but also mountain time. Italy is the ideal place to spend a few days on the hill and take advantage of nature in order to discover the varieties of mushrooms that live there.
Increasing the culture of mycology is the challenge launched by iMico, a serious game app of the SME Lucana iInformatica.
The name comes from the union of the two key concepts that underlie the application, computer science and mycology.
iMico is intended for a very large audience but, like all serious games contains important educational elements.
Thanks to iMico, in fact, even small players can discover the fundamentals of Mycology. The "Learning" section collects the main characteristics of each mushroom in the database, from which it will be possible to consult an information sheet (name, family, type) and a picture faithful to the original. All the drawings were made using digital techniques by the Palermo artist Gioele Gargano. In addition, to test their skills on the subject, the "Playing" section is full of quiz and memory. However, apart from being an educational experiment, iMico is above all a scientific experiment in research and development. An experimental section, in fact, includes the world of Deep Learning to mycology, allowing the user to identify the family of appearance of a mushroom, with relative probability of correctness, simply by taking a picture of it.
The app was presented to the municipality of Stigliano with the participation of the Order of agronomists and forestry doctors of the province of Matera and during the course of education and regional mycological education organized by the Endas Basilicata. In addition to revolutionizing the world of mycology, iMico hosts a community where enthusiasts and experts can share their experiences and contribute to the growth of the Lucan project.
The application, which does not intend to replace the opinion of experts, is in effect an educational experiment that will help to explore the wonderful mountains of the peninsula, such as the Pollino massif in Basilicata or the Sila in Calabria.
