Artificial intelligence is here to stay: also at the Vatican

Artificial Intelligence has also reached the Catholic Church. For example, a program called Magisterium AI helps users to easily find answers to questions of faith according to Vatican documents.

What we're really trying to do with Magisterium AI is really emphasize that this is something that can help you explore Church teaching, answer important questions that maybe you don't feel comfortable asking to a priest yet.

Artificial intelligence is gaining ground in the scientific field. For example, Vulgate AI helps researchers quickly find any document in a library if it has been digitized. The Vatican Museums have also taken advantage of AI to better process huge amounts of data. For example, they used it to better study an Egyptian collection.

Even though artificial intelligence offers a great deal of benefits, experts point out that there is one area where this tool cannot serve as a replacement: human experiences.

Founder & CEO, Longbeard
There's this anthropomorphizing of AI. I think it's important to understand that it's a tool, right? It's not meant to be a substitute for, certainly, for your priest. And it should be no substitute for real human experiences.
But it's never gonna be a replacement for sacramentally participating in the life of the Church or finding your own spiritual director and having more in-depth conversations about Church teaching and how it applies to your life.

Nevertheless, artificial intelligence is already a reality. Some of its uses were presented at the Pontifical Oriental Institute. In fact, Sanders helped one of the dicasteries to build its own web page to better serve its audience.

Artificial intelligence only continues to advance. In 2022, the artificial intelligence sector was valued at more than $400 billion dollars and it is expected to increase to more than $2 trillion by 2032.
