artificial intelligence IMT-BS


Today, artificial intelligence is transforming every economic sector and impacting society. Technologies based on artificial intelligence can lead to valuable innovations and positive performance for companies, but also present a number of negative effects. The ethics of artificial intelligence is a hot topic for governments, for the Europe Union and for individual companies. A recent report from the European Commission’s High-Level Group on Artificial Intelligence issued some trustworthy AI guidelines, while pluri-disciplinary research on ethical and responsible-by-design technology is intensively working on algorithms, bias, discrimination, encapsulated opinion and opacity challenges.
