AI: a focus on humanity

The delicate balance between technology, the role and protection of individuals

Artificial Intelligence: the last frontier of innovation and technology – for companies no less than for humanity as a whole. It is, however, a prospect to be considered very carefully, without losing sight of people – in production organisations as well.

This is what the recently published collection of studies Algoritmi, sicurezza ed etica dell’innovazione: la persona al centro della transizione digitale (Algorithms, Security and the Ethics of Innovation: the person at the centre of the digital transition) by Alessandro Alonsi and Fabio Pompei seeks – successfully – to achieve.

The argument of the two authors – who combine narrative ability and technical competence – starts from an observation: “Increasingly, citizens are unable to control what goes on around them, immersed in and overloaded by artificial stressors. Using computers too, apparently fundamental and extraordinarily helpful in handling everyday life, can intimidate people or threaten communication infrastructure and the security of devices if not properly directed.” Hence the move towards AI, which if not used ethically, they explain, “can contribute to social inequality, increase discrimination and put democracy at risk, with consequent repercussions on individual rights and health.”

From these basic considerations, the argument unfolds along a path with several stages: it starts from the topic of “the security of society in the new online world” then proceeds to explore a number of points: online data, young people’s difficulties when faced with the web, problems connected with past events and memory, the safety of the metaverse. Alonsi and Pompei don’t neglect the “good side” of technology either, however, of which there are some notable examples in any case.

Alonsi and Pompei’s book should be read carefully, containing as it does a message that is only apparently obvious: not everything in life can be reduced to a simple code, and it is more necessary than ever to understand the risks and limitations of innovations, unlocking their potential through shrewd and conscious management. The authors write: “Digital abstinence is not (…) a realistic option today. (…) A new physical, metaphysical and virtual reality envelops us, changes us, transforms perceptions, language and ways of seeing reality. It is up to us to keep our feet firmly on the ground, despite the fact that our heads will be increasingly immersed in the cloud.” It’s a situation that applies to production and social organisations, as well as to individuals.
