Ethics and artificial intelligence
AI systems learn by looking at data from millions of examples. It is difficult to predict how they’ll behave in new scenarios outside these examples. How can we get artificial intelligence systems to behave ethically?
Going against the current
"You don't drift toward holiness because the currents that we live in are all drifting toward the values of a broken world, the easy path, a lukewarmness that Jesus spat out."
How do we as Christians approach the whole business of economic development? (Lord) Rowan Williams reflects on ethics and enterprise.
@St. Peter's Church, Vere Street, London W1G 0DQ
A four-day intensive with LICC to refresh and resource you for impact right where you are. Can you imagine it? Living courageously for Christ amid the complexities of our times – right where you are? As followers of Jesus in the UK today we’re called to live as people with a distinct story in a culture that, in the main, doesn’t know, believe, or even necessarily care about it. How then shall we live joyfully for Christ in the UK today, amongst the people we talk with, work with, live with, relax with, and care for day-by-day?
