2084: Artificial Intelligence and the Future of Humanity
The artificial intelligence revolution has implications for all of us. What will the year 2084 hold for us humans? Are we doomed to the dystopias of George Orwell’s 1984 or Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World? Or will it be a transhumanist utopia?
In this Lanier Lecture, mathematician and philosopher, Professor Emeritus John Lennox (MA, MA Bioethics, PhD, DPhil, DSc) of Oxford University, will introduce some of the key developments in technological enhancement, bioengineering, and in particular, artificial intelligence. He will discuss the current capacity of AI, its advantages and disadvantages, the facts and the fiction, as well as potential future implications, including the transhumanist project.
Dr. Lennox is convinced that the Christian worldview, properly understood, speaks powerfully to our technological age and provides evidence-based, credible answers that bring real hope for the future of humanity.
