Italian Paolo Benanti appointed to UN advisory group on artificial intelligence

NEW YORK, OCTOBER 27 – Franciscan monk Paolo Benanti is among the 38 experst appointed by the United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres to a new AI Advisory Body to support the international community’s efforts to govern artificial intelligence.
“For developing economies, AI offers the possibility of leapfrogging outdated technologies and bringing services directly to people who need them most. The transformative potential of AI for good is difficult even to grasp. And without entering into a host of doomsday scenarios, it is already clear that the malicious use of AI could undermine trust in institutions, weaken social cohesion and threaten democracy itself,” Mr. Guterres said. “For all these reasons, I have called for a global, multidisciplinary, multistakeholder conversation on the governance of AI so that its benefits to humanity – all of humanity – are maximized, and the risks contained and diminished.”
Born in Rome, Benanti is an Italian presbyter, theologian and academic of the Third Order Regular of St. Francis. He teaches bioethics at Pontifical Gregorian University and is advisor to Pope Francis on issues of artificial intelligence and technology ethics. (@OnuItalia)
