IBM and Microsoft sign the Vatican’s Code of Ethics on Artificial Intelligence

A few months ago a meeting took place between the Vatican and Microsoft. Now the first results of the joint discussion have been announced. On Friday, the Vatican published a code of ethics on artificial intelligence, called the “Rome Call for AI Ethics”. With the support of IBM and Microsoft, they define several principles in it, which should ensure that modern digital technologies are used for the benefit of mankind.

According to the six pages of ethical guidelines, AI systems must be transparent, inclusive, impartial, reliable and secure. In addition, responsibilities must be clearly defined and users’ private data must be protected.

Among the first signatories of the “Rome Call for AI Ethics” are Microsoft and IBM, but also the President of the European Parliament, David Sassoli and Qu Dongyu, the Director-General of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).

The guide has been developed in collaboration with several leading entrepreneurs and experts and was produced at the Pontifical Academy for Life since Wednesday in a workshop with hundreds of participants.
