This is the first in a new series of interviews on the WeeklyTech Podcast, where a couple times a month we will highlight an interview with a leading cultural and thought leader about the role technology plays in our society.
This week Dr. John Lennox, a world renown author and Oxford professor, joins host Jason Thacker to talk about his new book, 2084: Artificial Intelligence and the Future of Humanity. They discuss artificial intelligence, the origin of the science, as well as the ethical and moral implications of technology. They also dive into the relationship between faith and science and realize that a Christian understanding and a Christian worldview is more than adequate for dealing with a lot of the moral and ethical issues surrounding emerging technologies.
