Vatican City, Mar 10, 2020 / 14:19 pm
The Pontifical Academy of Life said Tuesday that only one attendee of a Vatican conference held in Rome ten days ago has tested positive for COVID-19.
"We confirm that this is a single registered case, and is on the way to recovery," the Pontifical Academy of Life stated March 10.
More than 1,200 people from 41 different countries were registered to take part in the final public event of the Vatican workshop on ethics and artificial intelligence, according to the academy.
Microsoft President Brad Smith and IBM Executive Vice-president John Kelly III signed a document Feb. 28 at that event called "RenAIssance - For a Humanistic Artificial Intelligence" in the auditorium on Via della Conciliazione, down the street from the Vatican.
