Satisfaction was expressed by Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia, President of the Pontifical Academy for Life and the RenAIssance Foundation. “When reflection and dialogue on issues of technological development meet in a spirit of fraternity, it is possible to find shared paths and effective solutions to build peace and the common good”, he underscored. Archbishop Justin Welby, signing on behalf of the Church of England, said he was “delighted to support the Rome AI Call”, which emphasises the dignity of every human being amid technological change. ... “Let us all work to ensure that the dignity of every human being, created by God, not for profit or productivity, is central to all we do”.
