Automatismi e Autonomia[1]

L’indispensabile processo di definizione, con la migliore precisione possibile, dell’oggetto dell’indagine è particolarmente difficile quando si debbano prendere in considerazione gli sviluppi della tecnologia che da sempre accompagnano, in forma pressocché simbiotica, l’evolversi della storia umana. Quando poi la tecnologia è quella militare, le cose si complicano ulteriormente perché le armi nascono dalla cultura tecnica generale di una società, nel contempo però la influenzano e la condizionano; sono strumenti per distruggere una realtà ritenuta inaccettabile e costruirne una nuova, e ciò facendo spargono sangue umano. Non vi è da stupirsi quindi che, dalle origini dell’uomo, all’attrezzo “arma” sia stata dedicata una attenzione particolare e che la loro evoluzione sia stata in molti casi più accelerata di quella dei manufatti non adatti ad uccidere.

Interview on Artificial Intelligence with Jacopo Tagliabue, Lead A.I. Scientist for Coveo

Provided by the Author

Since I had the pleasure to listen to Jacopo Tagliabue’s presentations during my MA – when he was already a PhD candidate, I was struck. It was an important experience for me. It proved to me that intellectual achievements can be explained in a plain, clear, and passionate way. Encountering him during my own studies was a discovery I just tried to reiterate here in this interview. So, Jacopo – thank you for all your achievements. I hope they can be inspiring to many other Italian and international readers as well. I believe we need to speak more about hard-working, insightful people because, after all, the world can be wonderful if we are able to believe in it. Then, it is with my distinct pleasure to publish the interview on Scuola Filosofica – for those who don’t know it yet, is one of the leading philosophical blogs in Italy. In the name of Scuola Filosofica Team, our readers, and myself (Dr Giangiuseppe Pili), Jacopo: thank you!


[1] Dear Dr Jacopo Tagliabue, it is a distinct pleasure and a real honor to be your interviewer, thank you for your interest and availability. I hope you will enjoy the interview! So, thank you for joining Scuola Filosofica – Philosophical School! Let’s start with an introductory question: how would you present yourself to Scuola Filosofica readers?

I am Jacopo! Educated in several acronyms across the globe (UNISR, SFI, MIT), I’m now Lead A.I. Scientist for Coveo, after the acquisition of my own A.I. startup, Tooso. I failed the Turing Test once, but that was many friends ago.
