AI Ethics for Peace: World Religions commit to the Rome Call - Press Release

Hiroshima, Japan - July 9th, 2024. "All religions are called to work together for the good of humanity inhabiting this planet, and for the preservation of the planet itself, the common home of every living being. This concerns every aspect of our lives, and therefore also every new tool that technological progress makes available to us. Artificial intelligence is one of them: a great tool with unlimited possibilities of application, it can and must be guided so that its potential serves the good since the moment of its design. This is our common responsibility, and in this shared effort we can rediscover real brotherhood. At Hiroshima, a place of the highest symbolic value, we strongly invoke peace, and we ask that technology be a driver of peace and reconciliation among peoples. We stand here, together, to say loudly that standing together and acting together is the only possible solution."
