Greece to Unveil AI Application for Tourists Next Monday


Greece is set to enhance its digital governance with the launch of an AI application for tourists, announced Digital Governance Minister Dimitris Papastergiou. Speaking at the annual "Shaping the Future of AI" conference, organised by the Digital World Summit Greece at the National Research Foundation, Papastergiou highlighted Greece's progress in integrating AI into public administration.

The conference, held under the auspices of the United Nations, the Ministry of Digital Governance, and the Municipality of Athens, provided a platform for the minister to reveal the upcoming AI application. Developed in collaboration with the tourism ministry, this digital assistant aims to provide comprehensive information to tourists visiting Greece.

Papastergiou acknowledged the dual impact of artificial intelligence on the job market, noting that while AI may eliminate certain jobs, it will also create new opportunities. He emphasized the importance of retraining and upskilling the workforce to adapt to these changes. "Technology needs social sensitivity. You shouldn't go forward so fast without looking back," he stated.

Addressing future challenges, the minister called for the development of homegrown models, technology, and infrastructure, such as the DAIDALOS data centers with a green certification. He also advocated for updates to university educational programs to better prepare students for the evolving technological landscape.
