On June 1, 2024, the International Inter-religious Conference at the Vatican marked a historic milestone with the groundbreaking ideas presented by Boston Global Forum CEO Nguyen Anh Tuan. At the panel titled “The Impact of Artificial Intelligence on Interpersonal Relationships and Between Religions.”

In his address, Nguyen Anh Tuan emphasized the crucial role of interfaith and interreligious cooperation in the era of artificial intelligence. He introduces BGF’s the Knowledge Platform for AI, Tuan announced that the Boston Global Forum would collaborate with religious leaders to ensure Equality of Opportunity for every person, company, and country in AI, fostering a new democracy, happiness, and safety for humanity.

Approximately a thousand participants representing seven major religions attended this significant event. The panel featured testimonials from individuals of various faiths, highlighting the profound impact of AI on their communities. Fadi Chehade, in dialogue with the youth, and Nguyen Anh Tuan’s compelling insights were key highlights of the session.

Following Tuan’s presentation, numerous participants and organizations eagerly approached him to discuss potential collaborations with BGF in this initiative. The enthusiasm and interest demonstrated the global resonance of his ideas and the potential for wide-reaching partnerships.

The panel moderator posed three thought-provoking questions to Nguyen Anh Tuan:

  1. Ethical Challenges of AI in Diverse Applications:

“Speaking of AI today, we face an ethical challenge. If, for example, on the one hand, there are positive advances in medical robotics, on the other hand, we have a major influence on weaponry (e.g., armed drones and LAWS). What is the situation, and how do morals and ethics stand on such important issues?”

  1. The Drive Behind BGF’s AI Ethical and Governance Initiative:

“We know that with the Boston Global Forum, you have done a lot of work on this topic with an innovative project that puts ethical knowledge with influences from various religions at the service of AI. What prompted you to do this?”

  1. Addressing Big Tech’s Dominance in AI:

“How do we solve the problem of big tech dominating the market and AI?”

Nguyen Anh Tuan’s responses underscored the importance of ethical considerations and the integration of diverse religious perspectives in shaping AI’s future. His vision for a balanced and inclusive AI landscape resonated deeply with the audience, sparking further discussions on collaborative efforts to achieve these goals.

The event at Castel Gandolfo not only highlighted the intersection of technology and faith but also set the stage for a united global effort towards an equitable and ethical AI-driven future. The Boston Global Forum’s commitment to this cause promises to drive significant advancements in AI governance and interfaith cooperation, paving the way for a more just and prosperous world.
