Addressing the ethical, philosophical and theological challenges of today.

John Wyatt is a doctor, author, speaker and research scientist.

Advances in technology mean intelligent machines are likely to play an increasingly important role in our future
Bitcoin, warehouses of computers solving maths puzzles, the dot.com bubble, and FOMO
Suicidal ideation, no crystal balls, conscientious objection, and Hippocrates’ successful medical practice
Will the next generation of highly convincing AI chatbots really transform society?
Judicial activism, a ‘reasonably foreseeable’ death, the unacceptability of suffering, and reasons to stay alive
The Eliza effect, algorithms reading lung X-rays, the problem of other minds, and adventurers on Mars

I am a doctor, author, speaker and research scientist.

I worked as a consultant neonatologist for nearly 30 years, but I am now engaged in addressing new ethical, philosophical and theological challenges caused by advances in medical science and technology, especially AI and robotics. I am also fascinated by the interface between cutting-edge science and Christian faith. You can get in touch with me here.
