Roma Tre University

Edmondo Grassi is a PhD student in Theoretical and Applied Social Research at the Roma Tre University. His research is directed towards the development of artificial intelligences in relation to influences and ethical implications exercised on the development of the person and its social relations, towards the interactions between person and machine and towards the digital emotional manifestation. The intent is to outline future scenarios that imply the need to debate, today, on the ethics and morality of the machine, for the machine and its relationship with the human being. Furthermore, he is also interested in gender, politics and art.


Speeches of Edmondo Grassi

From the biological monad to the technological universalism: studies on artificial intelligence

The purpose of this proposal is to present, following a theoretical research between philosophy and sociology, what are the social and cultural changes that are taking place with the immanence of the AI and what its impact is on the value and ethical models of human society. If man must be overcome (Nietzsche, 1884) and the technique is conceived as the culmination of Western civilization (Heidegger, 1953), we can say that the theme of technology and poiesis represent the anthropological question par excellence. The development of artificial intelligence and robotics raises questions: does diversity arise from invasive and speculative technologies that will replace the concept known so far in the biological system? The multiplicity of possible interventions on the nature of being requires the redefinition of a new ethics, but is it called to define the other as posthumous? Design new social actors who need different rights and regulations in the same social context? Furthermore, until now, artificial intelligence and hybridization with the biological body of the human being has had a predominantly male representation in its representation (Space Odyssey, Blade Runner 2001), although we must not forget Metropolis - in the contemporary world, we are witnessing a kind of change (his ex-machina): is it a message through which we want to indicate that future artificial intelligences can become a new mythical representation of Mother Nature? Will technological progress have an impact on the future development of the genre and its theories? These observations should lead us to the hypothesis of establishing new ethical and moral standards (through a qualitative investigation based on the study of contemporary literature, scientific journals for observing technological progress and analyzing its value) for a future cooperation and coexistence between human beings and machines as an essential and immanent element of society: "our new intimacy with machines requires us to talk about a real new state itself" (Turkle, 2006).
