Recently I have followed some events that have made me reflect in the field of artificial intelligence, algorithms and technological acceleration.

What are these events? Here are a few.

1) DeepMind has solved a scientific problem that has been open for over 50 years

2) Facebook AI has released a deep learning framework that can simulate individual sports athletes and develop winning strategies

3) Elon Musk presented Tesla Bot at AI Day

4) Boston Dynamics presents the humanoid robot that does parkour

5) BMW Group has already incorporated Quantum AI into its strategy

6) The National Ignition Facility experiment brings nuclear fusion closer

Are we ready to manage knowledge?

These are all signs of a very strong technological acceleration, of a great evolution of software and hardware, an innovation that…


Clubhouse, l’ormai noto social audio, è un’applicazione che è stata sviluppata per iOS. Com’è noto il brand sta correndo ai ripari per produrre (nel più breve tempo possibile) la versione per Android.

Senza dilungarci su raccontare “cos’è Clubhouse”, lo faccio attraverso un video..

Ma nel frattempo, esiste un modo…


Last month, the XDA Developers team reported a change to the Chromium source with the addition of a new feature described as follows: “enable display of the voice search button in the top toolbar”. …


How can we open Google Assistant or Alexa and a voice application starting from a result in SERP?

In the video you will see an experiment in which, through a FAQ page and structured data, I obtained a rich snippet in SERP with the possibility of directly opening a voice application (a Google Action or a Skill for Alexa) on the smartphone or Smart Home device.

The universe of conversational systems now proposes various solutions, which are updated very often.
With this post, I will try to provide some clarity, giving you some ideas on how you can think and choose according to your needs.

In this mini post, in a simple example, we will understand how to make a conversational agent recognize the product code entered by the user within Dialogflow. The principle is the same on Actions Builder and Dialogflow CX.

The following are two examples of code format to recognize:

  • C16Z-1D12–0Y73 (3…

Google yesterday launched Dialogflow CX in beta, a new system created for companies that need larger and more complex projects.

I tried Dialogflow CX, and here are some considerations.

  • A visual builder that allows you to view conversational flows also appears on Dialogflow CX.


If the goal is to create a Google Action, any conversational flow can be developed both with Dialogflow and with Actions Builder. What changes, graphical interface aside, is the way of thinking. Let's see some aspects.

First of all the intent was (rightly) detached from the actions: they only have to recognize what the user says.
When is the action to be determined based on the intent established? Within the scene!
This is an optimization compared to Dialogflow, because the same intent can be used in different "contexts"…
