Polixis Featured on Italian TV Channel RAI1

On Sunday, 10 May 2020, the Italian TV channel RAI 1 aired Barbara Carfagna’s program titled “The Superpower”, which addresses the use of artificial intelligence in various sectors. The program covers interviews with leading experts in the public and private sector on how computing power can help man. It also features a trip by Carfagna to small, but agile countries like Armenia and Israel, whose economies have an enormous potential to grow thanks to the development of AI. 

It was a real pleasure to host Barbara Carfagna at our Yerevan office and tell her about our work. (The part about Polixis starts at: 0:31:27)
