A topic that will be thematically addressed in this issue of our journal is Artificial Intelligence, which has been considered in a rather ambiguous way during the last decades. For this reason, it seems advisable to publish a rather extended Editorial with the view of offering analyses and clarifications that will provide a rather clear frame for the discussion of such an important topic.
