In this conference preview, Matt Pinto speaks to technologist (and Catholic deacon) Rich Napoli. Rich was the CEO of a 1,200+ person tech company. These seven technologies are converging in business and the culture right now, and will be transformative. Can they be used by Catholic parishes and ministries for the proclamation of the Gospel, to ultimately serve the Common Good? Absolutely.

These seven—artificial intelligence (AI), blockchain/crypto/NFTs, augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR), API Economy, 3D printing, data analytics, and the Internet of Things (IoT)—will cause us to rethink what our businesses and ministries offer, how we engage our patrons, and the mechanics of how we deliver services.

Rich Napoli will unpack these more at the Catholic/Crypto Conference 2022.
