More than 100 participants from the Debate Clubs of the entire network of Jesuit centres and universities, as well as other invited institutions, debated the question: Will Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) pose a threat to humanity? A topical issue, surrounded by uncertainty and open to discussion.

Following the Ignatian debate model, seven Jesuit institutions took part in this meeting: Deusto, Comillas, ESADE, the San Agustín and Loyola Residences, the SAFA Foundation and Loyola University, as well as two guest universities: Pablo Olavide and the Dilema Debate Club.

The teams were welcomed by Javier Nó, Vice Rector for Teaching and Internationalisation of the Universidad Loyola, who stressed the importance of debating with respect and understanding.

The group phase, consisting of five rounds played on 22 and 23 February, left room for the occasional coffee break, to enjoy the company and strengthen the ties that unite the universities belonging to the UNIJES network.

On the last day, they returned to the campus to celebrate the final between Comillas and CMU Loyola. The finalist teams demonstrated, once again, their oratory skills, respect and agility.

In the end, the CMU Loyola was crowned champion in a very hard-fought session with high level arguments. The Comillas team, formed by Carlota Mateo Casas, Elena Recober Ruiz, E5 students; and María Fernández de Trocóniz Navarro and Sofía Rodríguez Hidalgo, E3 - Analytics students, finished in second place.

Congratulations to all the participants, but especially to our team! Your commitment, dedication and skills make the whole Comillas community very proud.

Furthermore, we are excited to announce that the 2025 edition of the UNIJES Debate League will take place in our facilities, a true honour.
