"This is how we will be the champions of AI": Almawave CEO Valeria Sandei on L'innovazione del Corriere della Sera

In order for the business and financial worlds to understand “the scope that this technological transformation may have on all sectors of our economy, and to grasp the strategic nature of this avenue, there must be companies capable of fielding and producing it, thus conquering the role of leading players in this new millennium powerhouse.” Valeria Sandei, ceo of Almawave, interviewed on L’innovazione del Corriere della Sera by Alessia Cruciani, talks about Artificial Intelligence, the decisive role this technology has and the prospects. “Now it is crucial that there is finance to support this innovation. The sector deserves attention and big investments.

Almawave is an active part of this industry and wants to play a leading role,” Sandei says in announcing the collaboration with Cineca and the Leonardo supercomputer to produce Velvet, the Italian AI model that aims to compete in Europe.

Velvet is “a large LLM language model that will be characterized by its ability to handle text, audio and images in multilingual mode, with an important focus on the Italian one. It will be opensource, accessible to everyone.”

This is a very important technological challenge. If we agree that this kind of technology will have such a strong impact on all markets, we want to be there not only as adopters but also as producers of our AI.”
