Have you ever wondered about the role Christians play in the rapid emergence of artificial intelligence (AI)? For some, there’s the excitement of possible life-enhancing advances, yet, for others, it feels like humans are trying to create a utopia. The implications of this technology can be challenging for all of us, which is why we’re thrilled to present Scholar Community member Jason Thacker’s book The Age of AI: Artificial Intelligence and the Future of Humanity.
Thacker’s unique perspective opens the reader to deep and thought-provoking questions on how Christians should respond to the increasing use of this technology. This book is a great guide that you can use to navigate through difficult concepts and learn about the very important role you play as a Christian in the age of AI.
