AI and Faith is a cross-spectrum consortium of faith communities and academic institutions in the Pacific Northwest. Its mission is to bring the fundamental values of the world’s major religions into the emerging debate on the ethical development of Artificial Intelligence and related technologies.
Faith communities, faith-related institutions, and universities in technology-centric regions like Seattle are home to many professionals, scientists, theologians, ethicists, teachers of religion, and other thought leaders who are stakeholders in the evolution of AI. AI and Faith exists as a channel for faith-based perspectives that may help shape the development of AI in ways that are deeply ethical and life-affirming.
We focus on how to ensure the flourishing of humanity in a world of technology while protecting and promoting:
The worth of human life and dignity of every individual
Societal justice and meaningful community
Liberty and choice
