For a number of years he was the head of the Artificial Intelligence Center at Olivetti, based in Cupertino, California. He has been a visiting scholar at Harvard Univ. and Stanford Univ. (conducting research on Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Science), has lectured in three continents on "The Nature of Mind" and "History of Knowledge" (most recently at U.C. Berkeley), and has published a number of books as well as hundreds of articles for magazines both in Italy and the U.S. "Thinking About Thought" (2003) and "The Nature of Consciousness" (2006) are his most recent books on these subjects. The readers for his university courses were compiled in the eBook "A Brief History of Knowledge" (2011).
As a software consultant, he pioneered Internet applications, Artificial Intelligence and Object-Orientated design in Silicon Valley. He also co-wrote the first "History of Silicon Valley" to cover the century from the founding of Stanford University to the boom of social networking.
All along he has also continued writing poetry both in Italian (for which he has been awarded several prizes) and in English (the latest poetry award was from Fog City Writers in 2007). "Synthesis" (2009) collects poems and meditations.
He pioneered Internet-based journalism. In 1985 he created his first e-zine, distributed by e-mail over the Internet. Between 1986 and 1990 he created an online database, downloadable via ftp. That database mutated into his own website in 1995:
He is probably more famous as a critic and historian of rock, jazz and avantgarde music. His main books on music are: "A History of Rock and Dance Music" (2009), "A History of Jazz Music 1900-2000" (2007), "A History of Popular Music before Rock Music" (2007), and a guide to avantgarde music (out of print and being revised on the website). He also writes regularly about cinema, literature, science and history.
He has organized several interdisciplinary cultural events in the Bay Area. The Leonardo Art Science Evenings (LASERs) started in january 2008. By 2012 LASERs were being held at University of San Francisco, Stanford University (both chaired by him in person) and in Washington DC at the National Academy of Science. Stanford hosted an interdisciplinary panel with scientists, thinkers, innovators and artists that became the SMMMASH (Stanford Multimedia Multidisciplinary Meetings of the Arts, Sciences and Humanities) in 2012. Also in 2012 Piero was invited to give the inaugural talk at San Jose State University's New Media Visionaries Speaker Sieries
An avid traveler who spends months on the road, piero had visited more than 140 countries of the world in 2012. Pictures of his travels have been published by magazines and used by the BBC in its series "Waking the Dead".
