“I would like to thank Fr. Philip Larrey for inviting me to be part of the presentation of his book entitled ‘Artificial Humanity – an essay on the philosophy of artificial intelligence’.
I am sure this book will be a great success and all of us who were present last Friday were truly grateful for experts like Fr. Larrey that chose to share their insights and contribute to the discussion on matters that impact the future of our world in such a significant way.
In the words of Pope Francis ‘Artificial intelligence, robotics and other technological innovations must be so employed that they contribute to the service of humanity and to the protection of our common home, rather than to the contrary, as some assessments unfortunately foresee.’
We, therefore, need to be inspired by the desire to advance the common good and to look at this as human-centric artificial intelligence. As a guiding ethical and legal framework is established we need to constantly pin our outlook with instruments such as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the EU’s Charter of Fundamental Rights, amongst others.”
