Kingdom Code - 4th Industrial Revolution - Leeds
@Revolution Leeds 48 Call Lane Leeds LS1 6DT
The technological revolution we are currently experiencing will (and already is) radically changing Western society. Described as the 4th industrial revolution, modern technology affects all areas of our lives; from what we purchase, to how we date, to our energy consumption and employment opportunities. At the next Kingdom Code Think event Rev. Jimmy Lawrence will explore the nature of those changes, how we might think about them from a faith perspective, and crucially what we as technology producers can do about it. This interactive session will be engaging, practical and pastoral, while drawing together threads from philosophy, cultural studies and theology.
