CWN Editor's Note: On September 27, Pope Francis addressed participants in a conference on “The Common Good in the Digital Age,” organized by the dicastery for Integral Human Development. The Pope reminded his listeners that in Laudatio Si’ he had cautioned against a “technocratic paradigm.” Noting both the promise and the dangers of robotics and artificial intelligence, he encouraged the group “to arrive at criteria and ethical parameters capable of providing guidance in ethical problems that occur with the widespread use of technology.”The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
