At a time when technology is rapidly advancing and leaving human rights at risk, scholars gathered at the Vatican and committed to building a model to align artificial intelligence with human flourishing.

This is just one of the resolutions of the Humanity 2.0 Human Flourishing conference that brought together engineers, business owners and experts in various fields to answer the following questions: What is stopping humans from flourishing? How can we create innovative solutions for this?

One of the attendees is the Co-Founder of Hallow, a prayer app that has been downloaded 14 million times around the globe. He brought insight into how this combination of faith and technology plays a role in human flourishing.

The fruit of prayer is always action. And so we're trying to really develop a holistic journey for our users to grow in their personal relationship with God, to discern His will in their lives but then also to live that out practically in their families and local communities and ultimately part of the global community.

Another guest is an expert in the fields of ethics related to law, business and theology. She studies the role that ethics plays in life fulfillment.

A lot of times when people talk about ethics they say, well you just have to make the right choice or the wrong choice but ethics is about living a flourishing life. It's about living a life where you are fully human, you're fully who God made you to be.

The conference also featured a priest who spoke on a panel about the benefits and drawbacks of the use of artificial intelligence for the global community.

We need a deep understanding of the human person, the purpose of human life and what societies should do and the measures they should take to really harness these tools as valuable instruments of service towards flourishing rather than instruments of destruction.

In addition to a committment to addressing the impact of artificial intelligence on humanity, another resolution of the conference involves creating an index that shows where human flourishing is and is not occurring.

Next year, scholars will gather once again to discuss the progress made on these resolutions and take more strides towards ensuring that all humans have the opportunity to flourish.
