In recent years, digital progress has brought significant opportunities and challenges, with serious implications in all spheres of society. In this era of rapid technological change, Artificial Intelligence (AI) has emerged as one of the most powerful tools with the potential to transform societies, advance peace, and achieve sustainable development. However, its ethical implications remain subjects of intense debate.

A number of urgent questions – at the interplay between technical, ethical, political, legal, and economic considerations – need to be asked. What will be the consequences, in the medium and longer term, of these new digital technologies? What impact will they have on individual lives and on societies, on international stability and peace, and on integral human development? This event aims to foster a comprehensive dialogue on these critical issues, building on Pope Francis' message on the 57th World Day of Peace on the theme of AI, with a view to direct techno-scientific research towards the pursuit of peace and the common good, in the service of the integral development of individuals and communities.
