You don’t have to be a computer scientist to get involved in the discussion about where artificial intelligence and technology are going.

What will the year 2084 hold for you–for your friends, for your family, and for our society? Are we doomed to the grim dystopia imagined in George Orwell’s 1984?

In 2084, scientist and philosopher John Lennox will introduce 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.

The questions posed by AI are open to all of us. And they demand answers. A book that is written to challenge all readers, no matter your worldview, 2084 shows how the Christian worldview, properly understood, can provide evidence-based, credible answers that will bring you real hope for the future of humanity.



In an attempt to place us within an imaginary grasp of what Dr. Tour is attempting to explain in the video below I thought it might be helpful to consider a quote from William Grassie as he in turn is found quoting Bill Bryson as he gives a description of ==> a simple prokaryotic cell from his book A Short History of Nearly Everything.



In this interview, Dr. James Tour and Dr. John Lennox discuss science and faith while also diving into artificial intelligence (AI). In this deep conversation with two great minds, Dr. Tour and Dr. Lennox converse on Dr. Lennox’s latest book “2084”, including topics on the Christian perspective on humanity’s future, the problems raised by AI, and a naturalist conception of what it means to be human. This is then followed with questions from the audience.
