How many times a day do you ask a digital assistant for help? But do we ever consider how the increased incorporation of AI into our lives will affect our individual and corporate privacy, the security of our jobs, our freedom? Are we doomed to the grim dystopia imagined in George Orwell’s 1984?

In 2084 Video Study, scientist and philosopher John C. Lennox introduces you to a kaleidoscope of ideas: the key developments in technological enhancement, bioengineering, and, in particular, artificial intelligence. You will discover the current capacity of AI, its advantages and disadvantages, the facts and the fiction, as well as potential future implications. Lennox argues that our worldview will have serious implications for any future AI and how it interacts with humanity. The 2084 Video Study shows how the Christian worldview, when properly understood, can provide evidence-based, credible answers that will bring real hope for the future of humanity.
