John is joined by mathematician, bioethicist and Christian apologist Professor John Lennox for a profound conversation centered on the current and future impacts of artificial intelligence technology. They discuss the shortcomings of science in the search for universal truth, the factors behind rising secularism in the West, China’s rapid AI implementation, our growing desire for immortality through biomedicine and the true meaning of ‘faith’. John Lennox is Emeritus Professor of Mathematics at the University of Oxford, author, Christian apologist, bioethicist and philosopher. He has written many highly-regarded books on religion, ethics and the relationship between science and faith. In 2020, Lennox published 2084 – Artificial Intelligence and the Future of Humanity, which covers key developments in technological enhancement, bioengineering and AI. In the book, he discusses the current state of AI – its benefits, dangers and future implications. Over the past 15 years, Lennox has been part of numerous public debates defending the Christian faith, including debates with Christopher Hitchens, Michael Shermer and Richard Dawkins. #ai #faith #transhumanism #secularism #surveillance ————————————————————————————————————– Introduction 0:00 Introducing John Lennox 0:47 Do we find truth in science? 2:00 Why is secularism on the rise? 7:46 What is Narrow Artificial Intelligence? 14:30 China’s Social Credit System 23:00 Rapid AI development 27:45 The Dangers of Artificial General Intelligence (AGI)? 33:41 The 2 alarming agendas of the 21st century 38:30 Humanity’s desire for immortality 40:30 What is true faith? 43:48 ————————————————————————————————————– Conversations feature John Anderson, former Deputy Prime Minister of Australia, interviewing the world’s foremost thought leaders about today’s pressing social, cultural and political issues.
