You should be able to use Flows or Process Builder (since activity = call log, is a related record to account in this case).

I attempted it with Flow and here is the high level of what I did...

Step 1:  Create flow on Task object 
Step 2: Inside the flow, "Choose Object and Specify When to Start the Process" :  do this on Task
Step 3: Under the criteria, choose on "Account" 
    Condition:  [Task].Account.OwnerId "does not equal"  field reference to [Task].CreatedById
Step 4: Create an immediate action (action can be anything as available in the drop down, including email alert, field update, chatter posting and so on)

I tried this with field update and it worked.   Good luck
