AI will boost post-COVID restart says Anselmi

Must be used to enhance emotional intelligence says ANSA pres

(ANSA) - ROME, NOV 8 - Artificial Intelligence (AI) will boost the post-COVID restart, ANSA President Giulio Anselmi told the third ANSA AI Observatory conference in Rome on Monday.
    "The restart, after the sharp brake inflicted by COVID, has only partly happened and, if it happens, it will also be thanks to the contribution of artificial intelligence, which is already with us at many levels," including virtual assistants like Siri, Alexa and Google Assistant, as well as science projects like studying earthquakes and meteorology, and the health sector, especially in helping identify illness, Anselmi said.
    Reacting to the pandemic had accelerated AI development, "in which everyone has invested," said the ANSA president.
    He went on to warn against a distorted use of AI, saying that in journalism, for example, "there is a risk of a massive, uncontrollable production of fake news".
    Traditional journalistic tools like fact checking and the rigorous checking of sources cane help stop fake news engulfing us, said Anselmi.
    More generally, he said, the key is "to use artificial intelligence to boost and enhance our own emotional intelligence". (ANSA).
