The NYT has a profile of Father Paolo Benati, the “self-professed geek” leading the Vatican’s thinking about AI. A good piece but this jumped out:
[Pope] Francis — who Father Benanti said has become more literate on A.I., especially after an image of the pope sporting an?A.I. designed white puffer coat?went viral — then became more animated. The pope liked when the discussion was less about the technology, Father Benanti said, and more on “what he can do” to protect the vulnerable.
Last month Adobe’s Dana Rao told me the Swag Pope was a “catalyzing event” for AI safety. One puffer jacket really can change the world.
