The Vatican Releases Its Own AI Ethics Handbook (

The guidelines are the result of a partnership between Francis and Santa Clara University’s Markkula Center for Applied Ethics. Together, they’ve formed a new organization called the Institute for Technology, Ethics, and Culture (ITEC). The ITEC’s first project is a handbook titled Ethics in the Age of Disruptive Technologies: An Operational Roadmap, meant to guide the tech industry through the murky waters of ethics in AI, machine learning, encryption, tracking, and more.

Fortunately for the tech business, the Vatican has a lot of experience answering questions about how we should consider the apocalypse. Father Brendan said that AI’s possible existential threats are serious, but the near term AI issues deserve just as much attention.
