Online Conversation | Understanding Transhumanism with Richard Mouw and Rosalind Picard
On Friday, September 10th we hosted theologian and author Richard Mouw and scholar and inventor Rosalind Picard as we explored the interconnection of AI, transhumanism, and human flourishing. This online conversation was part of our series on “Discovery and Doxology” in partnership with BioLogos and Church of the Advent. This series brings together leading scientists and theologians to discuss the relationship between science and faith.
Rapid developments in artificial intelligence and other emerging technologies can add confusion to the existential questions of who we are and why we are here. Through this conversation, Mouw and Picard explored the potential benefits and cautions of these technologies and thoughtfully examine the philosophical foundation of transhumanism.
