CHURCH AND SCIENCE: Ethics In Artificial Intelligence

The Pontifical Academy for Life has relaunched an appeal calling for ethics in artificial intelligence. The petition is contained in the article “Contributions from the Catholic Church to Ethical Reflections in the Digital Era” written by experts from the Pontifical Academy for Life.

The article begins by recalling the signing of “Rome Call for AI Ethics,” a statement regarding the need for human-centric AI ethics principles that was drafted by an interdisciplinary working group coordinated by the Pontifical Academy for Life last February.

The article highlights how Christian anthropology promotes an ethic that is open to the future and to science and technology. It also emphasizes the importance of the dialogue already initiated between technology experts and researchers in the field of social sciences which, it is hoped, should extend to include reflections in the philosophical and theological fields with benefits for all.
