Italian Observatory on Artificial Intelligence

The Italian Observatory on Artificial Intelligence is an initiative of the AI task force in cooperation with the research institute HER - Human Ecosystem Relations.

Using the most advanced technologies, such as NLP (Natural Language Processing), Machine Learning, Sentiment and Emotional Analysis, the Observatory collects and analyse public conversations about artificial intelligence on social networks in Italy so to capture the sentiment about AI in the country.

Who talks about artificial intelligence in Italy? How and how often does it happen? How do they feel about it? Collected data are made available as an open data set to citizens, businesses, researchers, students, schools and associations.

In this way the Observatory contributes to the national and international debate on artificial intelligence by providing easily accessible data that are useful to understand the phenomenon.

Sentiment: Find out what are the emotions that AI produces in Italy, what is the percentage and the absolute values of sentiments each day.

Topics: Find out the topics of the last 30 days. Circles dimension is proportional to the frequency of a topic.

Connections between topics: By mousing over the lines you can check whether there is connection between topics.
