(Brussels) The “robotisation of life” will be the focus of a document that the Commission of the Bishops’ Conferences of the European Community (COMECE) will publish in July. COMECE, a press release reads, contributes to the high-level expert group on Artificial Intelligence, set up by the European Commission to start a dialogue on the future of artificial intelligence with all stakeholders. At the same time, it contributed to a public consultation of the EU Commission on Artificial Intelligence. So now, through its Working Group on Ethics, moderated by Antonio Autiero, it intends to “address the many ethical questions raised by AI’s effects on our societies”. As “digital technologies are affecting every aspect of social life and shaping our way of life”, COMECE suggests the need for a “moral guidance that maximises safety, safeguards the common good and promotes human rights”. Indeed, society should be empowered and “not threatened by Artificial Intelligence”, a view that was also shared by the European Group on Ethics in a statement last March.
