Pope Francis on AI

When Pope Francis attended the G7 summit last month, he addressed the assembled country leaders with a speech on Artificial Intelligence, titled “An exciting and fearsome tool”, “concerning the effects of artificial intelligence on the future of humanity” as he said in his first sentence.

His speech is worth reading. His statements comprised the technologial ambiguity of AI, an explanation of its working mechanism, a warning about its ethical problems for human dignity and a call for appropriate politics to conceal concrete risks. You get the impression that this speech is based on scientific arguments provided by STS (Science – Technology – Society), technology assessment and ethics.
