Should we be afraid of robots and dangers of AI / Artificial Intelligence? Common sense view at an ethics conference organised by CARE, an influential organisation seeking to encourage debate on issues raised by science

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Spirituality, World Religion, Christianity, Church

Keynote on robotics, artificial intelligence and ethical issues raised by digital advances - by Patrick Dixon, Futurist, at conference organised by CARE, an influential Christian group in the UK which seeks to encourage debate on ethical questions raised by scientific innovation. The London conference was over-subscribed, standing room only.

"My audience that day was an interesting one: composed of church leaders, theologians, philosophers and ethicists, together with digital innovators, experts in Artificial Intelligence etc. It was clear from discussions that many of the audience had obvious, profound reservations about automation, AI and robotics, and that I would need to navigate the discussion carefully. I was the final speaker, bringing to a close a whole day which had been somewhat dominated up until that point, in my view, by techno-sceptics. So how would my "pro-tech" message be received - seeking to take a common sense and balanced approach to these important issues."

Future of global faith, mission and organised religion: why personal spirituality and hunger for purpose will continue to shape and influence our world, and why over half of humankind will identify themselves as Christian or Muslim

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Spirituality, World Religion, Christianity, Church

Video of keynote on global trends to over 1450 church leaders from 30 nations, part of the Elim church network.

Around 85% of people in the world today say that they recognise a spiritual dimension to life, which reflects an ancient pattern in place since the beginning of human history. While strident voices of humanistic atheism are likely to grow louder in some developed nations, they will almost certainly be drowned out globally over the next 50 years by the vast majority who remain convinced that there is more to life than atoms, molecules and bags of biodata. In developed nations, informal expressions of spirituality seem likely to multiply, as we see further decline in organised religion. Expect growth in personal systems for meditation, in self-help guides to spiritual enlightenment. So what will be the future of organised religion - Christianity, Islam and other global faith traditions?

One moment changed my life forever - meeting my first patient with AIDS, and how it led to an international church-based movement in 18 nations - ACET

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Spirituality, World Religion, Christianity, Church

I will never forget the first person I met with AIDS: a young student in London in 1987.   I can tell you the hour, the day, the month.

Just one person sick in a London hospital, out of 72 million who have been infected so far with HIV, of which half have already died, mainly in Africa. For the rest of my life, I will go on re-living that traumatic moment.  Let me explain why.  It led to a national and international people movement, mobilising churches to make a difference.

I had been asked to visit the AIDS ward, as a cancer doctor, to advise the medical team on how to relieve the symptoms of those who were very sick and dying.   I had no idea what I was going to find. I knew very little about AIDS, and I confess I was quite anxious about it all....

Churches are grabbing cyberspace and using web pages to promote the Christian.

And every few months the library doubles in size.
