If you use a smartphone or voice assistant like Alexa or Siri, have gone through airport security or shopped online, then you have encountered Artificial Intelligence or A.I.
What is A.I. and what are the pros, cons, and ethical implications for us as this technology gains greater power and influence in our world? How is A.I. being used to control people groups in Communist countries through social credit schemes and manipulate those of us in Capitalist countries to purchase goods and services? What are the positive contributions of A.I. to human flourishing?
Dr. John Lennox will answer some of these questions and provide a clear understanding of what A.I. is, where it is heading, some thoughts on how followers of Jesus Christ can and should respond to both narrow A.I. and the more speculative, futuristic visions of A.G.I. that impact our view of God, humanity, and salvation itself.
