In Italy, many topics affecting the population are discussed in different sectors of society, from Roman terraces to Milanese living rooms, from beaches to the countryside and picturesque villages. Italians have faced many difficulties in the past few months, and economic growth has remained stagnant with an almost imperceptible slowdown. But what draws particular attention and raises apocalyptic hues is the looming threat looming over all of humanity: artificial intelligence And whether Italy is ready for this technological revolution or not.
Words by Giulio Sapelli
Second giulio sapelliEconomist and Professor of Political Economy and Economic History at the University of Milan, Italy is not far behind e-skills with high added value. Engineers, programmers and even “positive hackers” exist in the country. However, the real problem lies in the lack of integration of these higher skills. Sapelli argues that it is not just a numerical problem of shortage, but of fragmentation of skills and lack of coordination. This fact has a negative impact on the driving force required to promote growth.
To meet this challenge, The Economist proposes actions aimed at streamlining these e-skills. In the past, large companies took care of this process, moving from the pulverization of high-tech specializations to the integration of skills and projects. Today, with some of Italy’s leading companies, Sapelli suggests Telecom Italia could play a role. key role in this process, On condition of being committed to investment and strategic actions.
The teacher identifies two important areas in which large companies should intervene. First, there is a lack of artificial intelligence expert, an area in which Italy has played a leading role Olivetti’s “Logan” Project, Second, there is an opportunity for growth in the new Internet, where content plays a central role and the Net becomes a network of objects.
Regarding the low percentage of graduates in engineering or scientific disciplines in Italy, Sapelli points out that innovation is not just a technical issue. It is necessary also prepare young graduates in the humanities to meet the challenges of digital. This requires greater flexibility within the school system and better synergy between universities and the world of innovative businesses.
Finally, Sapelli reflects on the digital revolution and work transformation. According to him, it is necessary to control these processes by human intelligence and not to suffer them passively. The digital revolution can increase productivity and reduce some control costs, but also requires more efficient and creative work. Such work must come from a wide range of technical creativity and humanitarian capacity to meet the challenges of the emerging process.
