    Good afternoon everyone! I am finally back and I will try my best to cover all your interisting points and reflect with you.

    @davidetoniolo Nice to see many non-profit companies trying to help our enviroment! I would like to buy a bracelet but the shipping cost is too expensive right now 🙁 Here in Italy there is a start-up who have patented an innovative system to help prevent the arrival of waste in the open sea through floating barriers to be installed in the rivers, able to redirect solid and river debris to a collection basin where they are accumulated, collected and sent to a subsequent recycling phase. I think it is a good start and I hope they can integrate the AI help in the future.

    Another case of usage of AI to help our enviroment is coming from Sweden, the Stena Line wants to keep the human captains and AI is used as a tool to help the captain to make more efficient decisions to reduce use of fuel. Their purpose is to reduce fuel consumption about 2,5% every year.

    @francescatomasello It is very interesting see these beautiful purposes of United Nations, unfortunately I don’t think they could achieve them by 2030 until politicians and so Givernaments won’t change their minds to build a better future for our home Earth; as you said AI is an amazing help but first of all the human being needs to be aware by these problems.

    @jessinthebox96 Wow! Beautiful projects, I didn’t know anything about them. Especially in our days, like @danielafiorellino said, the weather is totally crazy, AI will be very useful to help farmers and not only them to be more flexible and think new strategies to apply.

    @marcopastore What amazing and difficult topics! Thanks for sharing with us and thanks to @davidetoniolo and @francescatomasello for your thoughts.

    To be honest, I don’t know if I am pro or cons about genome editing. I think it could be a really great opportunity to fight some diseases like HIV. Obviously the research needs a lot of time to be completed and to see if it really works and which cons could be developed in the future. Some scientists speak about the high probability to have cancer releated to genome editing and some other diseases that cannot be cured by traditional treatments. (here the article). Well it is quite scary but probably because it is something new,I think it could be cool to improve some people life one day. At the same time I think if we need more research, we need to open our mind on human experiments but if something goes wrong how can we fix it? We have created a person with issues and who can suffer a lot..we’ll be forever our fault.

    As @francescatomasello correctly reported, we’re going to restrict the freedom of the person using genome editing. Genome editing needs to be used in a properly way and only if it is necessary.

    About the biohacking, I am quite scared about the microchip under the skin, it is like losing every piece of our privacy. It could be very easy stalker people in every single way. Apparently in Sweden a lot of people decided to use microchip under their skin.

    During my research on BioHacking info, I found this article and a person decided to insert into his chest the “North Sense”, in this way he can always know where he is. This system is born to replace in humans the ability of animal to understand where they are. How crazy it is?!? I think for our health it is a little bit dangerous. We still don’t know if Wireless waves are ok or they are cancer sources..having them constantly under our skin is not reassuring at all! Plus I don’t think this innovation is essential to survive. What I want to say is that crazy innovations on humans are ok only if they can remove big problems such as diseases for example.

    Hope to hearing your thoughts soon,

    Good evening everyone!

    Looking on internet I found main characteristics of Samsung Fold and Huawei MateX. Even if Samsung is the first one who presented the new mobile or better a new category of product, Huawei seems to be better than this one because, from the first release, it will contains 5G and will be possible use the main screen to manage apps while Samsung allows the management only from the small one; so Huawei seems to guarentee a better service than Samsung. As you said @valentina and @jessinthebox96 it’s a great move for Samsung to collaborate with Adobe and Instagram, I think it is trying to give a better good looking of its brand and use them to communicate great quality of the product. I think Samsung is a big competitor but is not at the top right now. I am wondering why Apple is not doing anything to be competitive. I was reading that Apple will launch the Iphone Fold with 5G integrated in 2020 but I think it could be too late and it could lose some market shares.

    @jessinthebox96 I really liked what you posted about Huawei Unfinished Symphony. It’s a really great communication campaign; in this way Huawei has managed to unite the social, cultural and technical side. It shows you how Huawei can be big and powerful and allows you to exceed limits. I think no one ever before did what this company did. This adv shows how and why AI could be useful in our society.

    @francescatomasello regarding to copyrights, it’s a very hot topic. I think copyright is right to be given to the creators of the program. Associate a copyright to a machine it doesn’t make any sense to me.

    @gianlucabelloni Well, actually it could be a little bit unrealistic think having a self-driving car by the end of the year but if Elon Musk is convinced about it..well something is going to happen, most likely. He is investing a lot on this innovation and he has a really good team of researchers..so let’s see.

    About the police control on driverless car, I agree with this system. Leaving the control to police, it could improve the police and emergency services and make safer roads. If we want the driverless car system, it is mandatory to make it perfect and able to undestand the situations thanks to a connection to public services. in according to that it’s important the help and implementation of AI innovations by Governaments.

    Lat but not least I saw this video report by TG3 and I found it very interesting. The first part talks about Robot and Ethics (it’s impressive see how the robot moves and talks) but the topic that I want to introduce you  is the application of AI and machine learning to reduce the sea pollution (you find it from the minute 3.56). There is a robot called Folaga, it looks like a missile;it can go down up to 80 metres and thanks to an exchange of sound waves it can recognize if it’s approaching a rock or not. We need absolutely make researches on AI applied to marine pollution, save our oceans and marine life is really important.

    Have a nice evening,

    Good afternoon guys,

    @francescatomasello I heard about the new discover by Elon Musk, incredible! Fortuntely Musk has the knowledge to not make public his research, but once discovered and patented it could be always a hide weapon to use to beat his competitors…As @jessinthebox96 posted the video of Obama, I saw it during an iBicocca event, it’s really catastrophic because it means will be very easy make catfish on internet and spread fake news to make money (well at end the main purpose is to make money, always). But once a fake news combined with the video of the person how can we know if that’s true or false? In this case, and in many other ones, the figure of the Jurist is absolutely needed, so @valentina be ready, I think you will have a lot of work in the future 😉

    @gianlucabelloni Thanks for sharing the article about Machine learning in the revenue management; this system is really helpful for firms, for sure there will be a better process of forecasting and analysis. @francescatomasello wow! I didn’t know about the hidden-city-ticketing! Really impressive. I think if the Airline knows about this error in the algorithm and doesn’t do anything to improve it to not be damaged well then it’s absolutely fair use the hidden-city-ticketing in my opinion; it’s not fair create a business on it as Skiplagged did. I think it is implemented the machine learning in the Airlines system so this error it would have to be corrected by itself after several cases but it didn’t, for this reason I think it’s legal do what people did. In this case we can see a human characteristic that AI and machine learning could not have right now: craftiness.

    @danielafiorellino I loved your articles!! They really opened my mind especially when they talk about the meaning of privacy in English and in Chinese; this word has a completely different meaning but very powerful to understand why Chinese are more open to these innovation and to give away more personal info than us. I totally agree about the Chinese AI implementation, it connects with the concept of “learning by doing” and actually only doing you can improve and making new discoveries, in my opinion. At the same time. as we were saying at the beginning of the forum, these implementations are dangerous during a period of technology laws lack, we are in the hands of the powerful ones. I totally agree with @francescatomasello who said ” At a global level there’s the need to create a sort of supranational regulation in order to merge USA and China quotes on Privacy, for example. We need to respect China’s culture but as we are on the other side, we should state that China is not respecting people at all, privacy is a controlled commodity and it’s not a real freedom for citizens.” We cannot allow to use these methods on us.

    @danielafiorellino The Fake moon is a really ambitious project. To be honest I think the research, the development and the costruction will cost more than the lights street. A lot of cons there are in these project:

    • Animals and eviroment: as @francescatomasello said
    • Light pollution
    • Human beings: having constantly powerful lights, during the night, I don’t think it is safe for our health

    All these cons wouldn’t be only for China but for all over the world.

    @francescatomasello As we are living in a stagnant economy and until when there won’t be a good education about technology (AI, machine learnining and deep learning) people and firms won’t be confident to undestand and try to interact with technology. Italy has many resources and good characteristics but unfortunately hasn’t the innovation one. This is a lack of our culture and due to a high rate of functional illiterates as @valentina and @davidetoniolo said some posts before. We need more communication campaigns on this sector trying to give more info and trying to change mentality. Hopefully many italian universities are trying to organise courses and events about the future of technology; for example I knew Impactscool, an italian start-up born to educate people on tecnology, thanks to iBicocca.

    @jessinthebox96 I need this flatmate app! I am fed up to be the only one who cleans the flat..I will give a look and maybe I’ll try it!!

    In the latest hours in San Francisco, Samsung released a new type of phone, and a brand new type of product, the Samsung Galaxy Fold. Apple already patented the idea in 2014 but still hasn’t producted it. So is Samsung the new pioneer in the mobile field?

    Good afternoon guys! Sorry for my absence but I’m going to have the last exam of the season this week.

    I have read a lot of interesting and technical comments here, I want to thank you all!

    So here we go:

    @francescatomasello The YAGMU start up is really had a innovative idea! And about the Intesa San Paolo plan, as @davidetoniolo said, it’s nice to see this kind of commitment in tourism. Here in Italy we have one of the most enormous historical heritages in the world, but unfortunately there isn’t a good management and really often are missing the economic funds to do restorations and to implement new innovated systems. As Francesca said, it’s fundomental bet on new ways of marketing because if we want more young people as tourists, Social networks are the answer for a great communication and engagement.

    @danielafiorellino Great videos! I liked the comparison between biology and future technology. I agree with @francescatomasello, we need time to accept a new lifestyle; a driverless car will completly change our lives and will not so easy get used to it. While I was watching the video I was thinking if right now I am ready to buy a driverless car and the answer is no; I need time to get idea and I would like to see someone else first using this innovation, I wouldn’t like being a tester ahah.

    @francescatomasello Good to see that there isn’t only Google exploring the driverless car. My first thought was “But the other companies like BMW, Fiat, Renault etc what are doing right now to gain points in this sector?” Because I haven’t heard anything about them. Google or Apple or Tesla are going to implement the perfect driverless car as first, the other companies will suffer a major disadvantage and will not be easy to recover because people could lose loyalty in them. Well actually their are doing researches in that field. Fiat is spending like $30 millions on researches in Michigan, do you think it could be at the top as Google or Apple? But I was reading too that the Chief of BMW thinks that due to the moral machine problem the driverless car will not be allowed on UK roads. I don’t think he’s right.

    @peppuz Wow! It’s really fascinating!!! But now catfish on internet can be more real.. AI has no limits right now. I was in a meeting organised by iBicocca and the guest, the start-up Impactscool, talked about what AI can do. It can create a song mashing a lot of songs from the same singer, can create paintings, can even create the plot of a TV spot as this one.

    @valentina and @davidetoniolo I agree with you that will be very useful, a lot of people learn a lot reading articles on social media and internet but not always they are true! It could be cool have an encyclopedic collection of articles, all in one app, that everyone understands and maybe it may reduce a little the functional illiteracy. Unfortunately Wikipedia is not quite reliable…MIT is working on a machine learning system to detect fake news, they started in 2016 due to the American elections.

    In these days I was thinking about who, between China and USA, will be the winner in the AI. Both are very advanced in this field. According to this article China wants to be the leader by 2030 creating a value industry of 150 billions of dollars!!! I think China is advantaged because of it has already implemented AI and machine learning in many dailies realities..I mean they already living many of these powerful innovations. What guys do you think?

    I’m going back to study,

    Cheers!

    Hello guys!

    @francescatomasello Thanks for sharing the KFC article. It was a nice shot for KFC to try the AI in their restaurants but I don’t think a machine could give you the best choice only “watching” in your face and by your mood..well until the machine can’t see our thoughts. I don’t understand which kind of connections the machine choose what meal giving to me, well the human being set up the connections into the machine but I don’t find any relation between them. Maybe, one day, using the machine learning they could learn time by time. About privacy, it’s good to see one of them complaining about the collecting data and it’s really sad what they affirm ” In China you don’t have any privacy anyway”. Interesting point the social card implemented by the Chinese Government, it is a serious problem; like the article said you will gain points having a good behaviour and making good choices. But what are the good choices? This point let me think about losing all the freedom and making a new kind of dictature. Is it fair? Fortunately, at the moment, we are safe in Europe but I can’t stop thinking about that poor people living in this dramatic conditions.

    @davidetoniolo Ahaha unfortunately I can’t patent the idea. I am sure someone in the future will think that; for sure it is a good thing that doesn’t exit the perfect robot but at the same time, probably, I would feel more safer in that way if I have the chance to not give away my data. Let’s see what future will bring to us.

    @francescatomasello Me too I didn’t hear anything about BIT. It looks interesting and a good comparison opportunity. I found an article talking about the application on AI and FR in Hotels. There are robots, in Venice, used as receptionist and FR is used to enter in the own room without the key. I think it would be fascinating the first approach to a robot but then quite scary. It sounds like we are going to lose the relationships between humans and a lot of traditional jobs. I am confident that in the future we can looking for the best/convenient holiday and book it just with a voice command, like Alexa (well maybe it’s already possible, I haven’t Alexa so I don’t know very well all the services it can provide) saving time to researches (even if in this way will cut the emotion of dreaming while searching for a journey).

    @gianlucabelloni This is a hot point right now. I think the final purpose of Zuckerberg is monetize, again, our data but this time all in one. I don’t think it’s fair that Zuckerberg holds these 4 worlwide firms, it would be more proper create a privacy law that prohibits the holding of more than one company with a high number of users (like Facebook, Instagram etc) to avoid this problem of monetization and invasion of privacy.

    I would be very happy to joining you at the “aperitivo”. I’ve just joined the telegram group, thanks @peppuz for creating it 🙂

    Have a nice evening,

    Good afternoon guys! Sorry for my absence but I was pretty busy in these days. Hope everyone is doing very well.

    Going ahead with the topic, thank you @francescatomasello for the article. It is really fascinating see this type of innovation created by human beings, it makes me think how much is wonderful our mind. It’s really amazing the self-awareness of this machine and impressive how can it learn something new in few time. I agree with the developers, the self-innovation could be very dangerous and once implemented, I think will be very hard to stop it or modify. More than anything else I think if one of the machines would be sold to do some operations but suddenly they start to do something completly different thanks to the self-awareness, It could be drammatic, especially in certain fields like healthcare. Obviously this type of innovation it’s only at the beginning but it has already proved how powerful it is.

    @danielafiorellino wow, how crazy are these people? I remember the campaign where people jumped off the car during the Drake song, I admit it was funny see those videos but actually very dangerous; this is a negative effect of social media, more you are crazy and do dangerous thing more the web will acclaim you. I guess this is a reasult of a deep problem of our society, I mean if people want to see that type of videos and want to do that type of thing only for having 15 minutes of popularity, it means that in real life, the life itself is not stimulating and rewarding “normal”activites. It’s necessary to be educated about the use of the social networks and be aware of the consequences. Like everything there are pros and cons.

    @danielafiorellino Thanks to have quoted me ahah, I appreciate you agree with my words. I really loved the article you posted. So FR is already used in our lifes; I agree with @davidetoniolo but I even think that in the future, if FR would have an increasing use and positive feedback we will be oversaturated even in small cities..well it will take time, for now we are “safe”.
    Even if I am still scared about the usages of these tecnologies, I was thinking a new way of application of AI in advertising. If will be created a robot complete by emotions recognition and AI/self-awareness, could be the possibility that robot will be used like an advertising tester in the future? What I want to say, usually people are tester to create new types of communication and advertise but if the robot acts like a human, recognizes emotions and has self-awareness maybe communication agencies can use the robot as a tester for forecast the result of a communication campaign. This could lead to reduce use of these innovations on people and companies can save part of costs on market research and avoid invading privacy. Of course the robot must be really perfect, which at the moment (and fortunately) it is not. I’m probably fantasizing too much with my mind but I’m trying to see the positive side the application of this technologies.

    @valentina Well, I am happy that is a “bufala” I was quite scared, but that doesn’t mean that in a far future it couldn’t happen!

    @valentina regarding The state of the art in IT, it is really useful create a network who permits to clarify many aspects of IT legal system. Actually right now it is very hard to understand wich laws firms need to comply.

    Hope to hearing you soon, have a nice weekend!

    Good evening everybody!

    I am sorry for double posting but I am trying to be more active as soon as I have a little of free time.

    I missed the part of the machine learning test! How fascinating it is!! It’s really good to have a test to getting envolved and simulate such as these complex ethical decisions.

    @francescatomasello I think the driverless car is connecting with the traffic light system so before the accident it knows what kind of color is on. Unfortuntaly I don’t think it could know what kind of people and how many of them are crossing the road..for now. If in a future will be implemented a good FR system connected with driverless cars IT system it could be possible know the type of pedestrians; for sure the time is very little and engeneers need to work hard on this variable because is a crucial one.

    Regarding to social media, this article is doing a great analysis! In the near future I guess will be the hot years of the bubble I was speaking before; more than ever social media will have an e-commerce role than a posting one. But if this fact is going to be happen..what could be the next step? A return to the old usage or we’ll finally getting out of social media? Or they will be integrated with a future FR system and we all have a unique digital identity? Well a beginning of digital identity is already done by SPID, a public service that can permit to collect,  for example, healthcare and tax info in only one account connected with the public service web sites.

    Good afternoon guys!

    @davidetoniolo I completly agree with you, you’re not too pessimistic; to make real an IT technology I think we need to think more negative to find solutions to problems in this way it could be implemented in a better way. As you said this technology could put in danger people and it allows to create a very dangerous “market of emotions”, furthermore when Emotion FR will work very well with at east of 90% emotions recognized it will be very dangerous if not used in a properly way. I mean with Emotion FR it could be used as a psychologist or as a teacher or in many other traditional professions. It’s necessary to find the correct integration between IT and Humanity, to not lose our feelings but at the same time be helped to build a better lifestyle.

    @francescatomasello I am glad that the Ethical issue about driverless car is being considerated and are taking care of to find out a solution. This topic is hot right now, behind every innovation there will be always an ethic problem who needs to be resolved.

    @jessinthebox96 Really interesting your point about the application of FR in the live concerts industry. It would be a very big step and it allows concerts to be safer and make the queue flow faster; in the other hand people who works in the concert box offices, like me for example, will lose the job (I’ve already know that is a kind of job who can’t be eternal) and  I think and I hope they can find a solution to permit people to resell they ticket (I am not talking about “bagarinaggio”) in case they couldn’t attend the show.

    Like I said at the beginning and in my previous post, even if Emotion FR is charming I won’t feel comfortable receive personalized advetising. In my opinion FR it could be useful only if used for improving the national welfare (e.g. healthcare and fight against the crime issues). Regarding to the update article of @danieletoniolo I agree with Smith about the partnership between Microsoft (and maybe Google, Amazon, Apple etc) and Governments using FR. The problem is the law is not already aware of this revolutionary wave, so we need to improve together FR and legal system (national and international) and ban the FR for marketing/economic purposed. But right now how many governments could be eligible to use this type of innovation? China? Russia? Usa? Venezuela? Until the entire world won’t focus on respect and dignity of the person there will be always someone who will benefit in an unpleasant way. I think we are not ready right now.

    @valentina @francescatomasello I really enjoyed the Umberto Eco article. It’s impressive think how people, coming from different eras where technology didn’t exist/was at the beginning, predict our present. Everyone wants to have 15 minutes of popularity, that’s true, but I think we’re living in a bubble. In my opinion, speaking about social media, they won’t existing anymore in a far future or better they will change way of usage. I found an article where Andrea Pezzi, entrepreneur of technology, thinks that one day we will have a microchip under our skin that sums up our digital identity. I really hope it is just an hypothesis otherwise it would be very frightening. It looks like Black mirror will be our reality.

    As you posted @valentina Facebook is trying to get its trust back and give users confidence again. It won’t be easy and it takes a lot of time..It needs to communicate very well what type of direction it wants to take for the future to be able to re-launch at its best.

    Hope to reading your thoughts soon!

    Good evening guys and welcome to @peppuz. Hope you all are doing great!

    Many interesting inputs you have pointed out.

    First of all I totally agree with @marcopastore and @davidetoniolo about using AI on trains. Unfortunately, like many of you, I have to deal with Trenord and Trenitalia many times during the week and I travelled in very bad conditions sometimes. A constantly thought was about the people who never pay the ticket and most of them take advantage really often. So the idea to use FR to improve this service would be very interesting and useful but in the other hand I think they can’t even keep clean trains..imagine to see these two firms doing investment in the technology field. Unfortunately they are not ready to do the big jump and to think a new good strategy to make a really good service.

    @danielafiorellino I think it is a really good idea! Like you said airlines companies already have a lot of digital info about us. I believe that in few years they will spread out the FR, they are just waiting the good time to implement it. A lot of time would be saved and a safer service would be put on.

    But in general  I still have fears about our privacy, I mean giving away parts of our body, like the fingerprint and the eye, maybe it could be risky because third parties can use them like they want and we are unable to stop them and defense ourself until an appropriate law will not be emaneted. It is really necessary to take serious mesaures as soon as possible to integrate these fascinating innovations and at the same time guarantee a safe system-safe life.

    Going ahead, I was reading an article about the mix usage of FR combine to the AI motion detection. How crazy it is?! It was implemented by the University of Science and Technology of China (China, again! ahah) and the system recognignized 63% of the emotions proposed.

    Referring to AI motion detection, the Columbia University has experimented the first system who can tranlated thoughts to words using AI. Algorhytms are again the main protagonists; they have created an algorithm able to dialogue with the stimuli of the human brain. For now it’s supposed to be used on who suffers of epilessy and can’t talk anymore. This is a great revolution for the healthcare field and maybe, one day, for the fight against crime; for sure this system it can help in many ways..I hope it will not be used for economics-political purposes. We need to be aware of this powerful revolution.

    About the topic of driverless cars introduced by @francescatomasello, I found a little ethical reasearch who talks about a hypothesis: who to save if a fatal driverless car crash is unavoidable?

    Actually it’s an important issue, AI is programmed by one or more humans and how can they decide to keep alive in a car crash? Which are the criteria to make a choice? For sure using a normal car this type of problem would not exist or better would be the destiny to decide.

    Let me know what you think!

    Hope to hearing you from soon,

    Good morning to everyone and welcome to the new members!

    Thank you @marcopastore to introduce a new topic, facial recognition is another intresting but crucial one.

    Seeing the video I was quite scared how this system is gwowing so fast. In according to YITU the facial recognition system would make “the world” healthier..but how? I totally agree with @francescatomasello , think if they actually understand by technology our thoughts and emotions, collect our data and sell them to marketing industries..It would be catastrophic. About Facebook case, this social network has already implemented a soft type of facial recognition on photos we post.

    Personally I am not ready to use this innovated system giving away my last piece of privacy. I agree with @davidetoniolo and Francesca that is very important EU makes an appropriate law to guarantee our freedom and privacy. By the way this new system would be a help in a certain way but I don’t think we are already conscious to undestrand when it is right using it, and as I said before there are many economic-political interests behind. Maybe it would be better if Governaments give training about correct use and risks once the system is about to be launched in Countries.

    But how many investments there are in facial recognitions? But overall how is the value of a start-up in facial recognition? I say millions and millions and a real new rich market is being created and is going to grow day by day. According to a Wired article YITU startup is worth $300 millions and has more than 300000 employees. Can we still call it a startup? And there are many more startups who worth more and receive more investments than Chinese one.

    Going on with the topic I found an interesting video talking about the replacement of human newsreaders in China. It consists to use the faces of two models and the voice of a robot to read news in Chinese and in English. How crazy it is? Yes it is only the beginnig and a lots of improvements need to be done. By the way Xinhua news agency has launched another threat in the job market; someone says we have not be scared about the disrupting of the old professional jobs because new ones are about to come, but at the same time I don’t think all the people in the future would be only digital/mathematical and statistic jobs lovers.

    Regarding Amazon Go video..it is really stunning!!  It would be very interesting to know how the machine learning could “understand” when and what are you taking from the shelf and when are you put it back on. For sure we will save a lot of time and it would be cool to try at least one time but at the same time I don’t think I’d feel comfortable using it. Seeing how Amazon is diversificate its business and how it’s essential the use of a mobile, I am waiting to see the launch of an Amazon mobile phone with its own browers ahah (maybe it is more real of what it could appear..)

    Waiting to know what are you thinking about facial recognition,

    Hello guys!

    I am a new member!

    I’ll start presenting myself. I am 23 and I am enrolled at the last year of the Management master degree. I was informed by some friends about this beautuful opportunity and, as I like exploring new projects and adventures, I decided to get in the ring! 🙂 I have many passions but the main one is music, in fact, I write some articles for Radio Bicocca and sometimes I work at the concerts.

    I was reading your comments on the AI topic and I was really impressed and I agree with you all. Like Francesca said before, I am totally in love with the film Bicentennial man too, it describes very well what AI could be in the future. I saw few days ago the cartoon Big Hero 6 and it tells about this robot who was created like a replacement doctor. I even saw on the TG1 (unfortunately I can’t find the link) that was about a delivery robot and in complete autonomy it was walking by the city and do the deliveries..It was crazy!!

    These are only two examples of how much is powerful AI. AI is very fascinating and gives a lot of benefits, it is created to help people and improve services but at the same time I think it’s very dangerous beacuse it could affect the job market and create a big loss for the economy and for the emotions. The main key to curb the problem and to keep having benefits is the HUMAN BEING. Only the HB have the power to control and to undertsand the thin line before the point of no return.

    Other examples are the film Her that talks about a man who is falling in love with an intelligent computer; the ballet of Roberto Bolle with a mechanical arm , the concept is underlining that even a machine can feel emotions. Is this really possible?

    It seems like people are gonna lose their emotions making them acquire to the AI.

    @marcopastore Wow! Thanks for sharing this interesting video. It makes me think a lot about AI. Could AI really think and decide by itself?

    Hope to hear you soon,

    Serena
