For over a hundred years science fiction writers have been dreaming and imagining a world in which machines are as intelligent as human beings. Now, science fiction is starting to come true in front of our eyes, and we’re not quite sure if this is a beautiful consummation of our longings or a terrible nightmare that we won’t be able to control.

I recently took part in an evening exploring artificial intelligence and its implications for Christians at All Souls Church, in central London. Below you can see videos of my keynote speech, a discussion with the apologist and journalist Justin Brierley, and then a Q&A with the audience afterwards.
