“Mark Zuckerberg is a great businessman. Sure, it’s funny that he has so much money and always wears the same clothes.” Many people probably thought so. But the courage to say it, not to write it, he had a car. It was Blenderbot 3, one artificial intelligence based chatbot which Meta just made available to … Read more

Declining forest resilience worldwide

Forests play a fundamental role in life on the planet and provide many important ecosystem services. In some areas, including Europe, their extent has also increased over the past thirty years or so. But what if, in the meantime, forests had also become more fragile? This is a recently published article Nature: analyzing the last … Read more

How to reduce the ecological footprint of artificial intelligence experiments

The climate crisis requires us, and we would do well to do so decisively and politically, to control the emissions of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. It applies to large emitters, it applies to large companies, but an ethical logic applies to small everyday actions as well. Try to reduce ours carbon footprint, That is, … Read more

DeepMind, Alphabet’s AI, has published the 3D structure of (almost) all existing proteins. That’s why it’s important

He was born just four years ago. And since then he worked tirelessly, reaching today the incredible result he has revealed the molecular structure of about 200 million proteins, almost everything known to science. He is the protagonist of this business AlphaFoldartificial intelligence system developed by Deepmind of Alphabet (or the large Google family) and … Read more

Artificial intelligence and medical diagnosis, among the new challenges and the butterfly phenomenon

(Edited by Giovanni Alliegro, Fosco Gentili, Giuseppe Modugno, Alessandro Rondinone for the Luiss School of Government) In chaos theory, the butterfly effect describes the principle that small changes in initial conditions are capable of causing large changes in the overall behavior of a system. Thus, it is believed that the flapping of a butterfly’s wings … Read more
