The Catholic Church publishes a monthly 'Pope's Prayer Intent' to help deepen the daily prayers of Catholics by focusing on specific topics and events. The topic of 'Intention of Prayer' is different every month, but the topic of November 2020 is 'Artificial Intelligence', and Pope Francis said, 'I pray that the progress of robotics and artificial intelligence will always be useful to humankind. '.

A movie by Pope Francis himself about his monthly prayer intentions is available on the official Catholic Church YouTube channel called Vatican News , explaining his November prayer intentions.


In the movie, Pope Francis said, 'Artificial intelligence is at the heart of the breakthrough changes we are experiencing, and robotics, when combined with the public interest, leads to a better world of technology. If progress increases inequality, it is not true progress. Future progress should be directed towards emphasizing the dignity of people and creations. Robotics Let's hope that the progress of artificial intelligence will always benefit humankind. '

In February 2020, Pope Francis created the 'Roman Call for AI Ethics' in collaboration with companies such as Microsoft, calling for the ethical use of artificial intelligence (AI). In this, we advocate six principles to guide the evolution of artificial intelligence in the right direction in the future.
