Our topic today is a disruptive technology that will continue to increase its impact in both the private and public sectors for the next few years. We are talking about Artificial Intelligence, an open, topical issue, a source of discussion and continuous growth, in the true sense of the term.

The availability of data, cutting-edge infrastructures and the Internet of Things have allowed AI to grow and spread in the industrial world, embracing the principles regarding the green and digital transitions.

The latest data from the Artificial Intelligence Observatory at the Polytechnic University of Milan indicate that the Italian AI market recorded an increase of +52% in 2023, reaching a total value of 760 million euros.

Most investments are concentrated in large companies, where 6 out of 10 have already initiated at least one project with this technology.

For Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), however, only 18% have undertaken investments in this regard, largely due to a lack of available resources.

It will therefore be essential in the short term to support SMEs in breaking down entry barriers by supporting them in this important and strategic revolution.

AI is an imperative for any company that wishes to improve its efficiency, acquire new income opportunities and increase customer loyalty.
