Round table’s focus:
Artificial Intelligence is the heart of a new revolution with a strong impact on economy and work organization. The McKinsey Global Institute predicts that, by the end of 2030, Artificial Intelligence will produce an increase of 16% of the world’s GDP and 70% of companies will adopt a technology based on smart systems (Notes From The Ai Frontier, McKinsey Global Institute, 2018). In this context the complexity of the problems faced requires a strongly interdisciplinar and innovative approach in research centres both private and public, like Google, Facebook or Amazon. At the root of this revolution there is a specific branch of Artificial Intelligence: the Machine Learning. The success of this approach is testified by the spread in the daily life of Alexa or Siri, advanced systems supporting the guide as those supplied by Tesla cars and machine translation interfaces like Google Translate, just to mention some examples.
Marco Becca, IFAB’s Director, stated: “We want to play a strategic role in supporting Italy and Bologna as a nerve center in Europe for the development of our society, through an efficient and responsible application of Big Data and AI. We believe we can add value to this high-level International scientific debate, bringing into the game also businesses’ vision and perspective. This is because our mission focuses on the exchange between the sphere of science and the world of businesses, emphasizing to the sustainability of projects.
