The COVID-19 pandemic has worked as a catalyst, pushing governments, private companies, and healthcare facilities to design, develop, and adopt innovative solutions to control it, as is often the case when people are driven by necessity. After 18 months since the first case, it is time to think about the pros and cons of such technologies, including artificial intelligence—which is probably the most complex and misunderstood by non-specialists—in order to get the most out of them, and to suggest future improvements and proper adoption. The aim of this narrative review was to select the relevant papers that directly address the adoption of artificial intelligence and new technologies in the management of pandemics and communicable diseases such as SARS-CoV-2: environmental measures; acquisition and sharing of knowledge in the general population and among clinicians; development and management of drugs and vaccines; remote psychological support of patients; remote monitoring, diagnosis, and follow-up; and maximization and rationalization of human and material resources in the hospital environment.
