In this bonus interview for the series Science Uprising, mathematician John Lennox discusses the threats and benefits of artificial intelligence (AI), especially the claim by transhumanists that AI will create a race of god-like super-humans. Lennox compares the transhumanist claims to his Christian understanding of the future of humanity.
Lennox is author of the book 2084: Artificial Intelligence and the Future of Humanity. He is emeritus Professor of Mathematics at Oxford University, an internationally renowned speaker, and author of several books on the interface of science, philosophy and religion.
