Ethics and artificial intelligence

Church Through a Tech Lens - London
@GlobeSpace 140-148 Borough High Street London SE1 1LB
Christians are often portrayed as a bit backward with regard to technology, but is this really the case? On Monday 3rd Febuary we've invited church history lecturer Tom Breimaier to join us. We'll be exploring how technology is on display in history of the church, and how that challenges us to think of where we go, and what we build, from here. Tom introduces the session: "We'll be considering three main ideas; first, how do we see technology on display in the Bible? Second, we’ll look at how the church has incorporated various technological elements into it’s work over the past two millennia. Finally, we will consider together where we might go from here."
Sexting, Social Media and Staying Safe Online - Preston
@Preston Minster, Church Street, Preston, PR1 3BT
Young people who send and receive sexts are more likely to engage in early sexual behaviours that brings with it a range of emotional, sexual and physical risks. In a culture that ‘rates’ teen boys for sexual activity & ‘shames' girls, technology plays a significant role in amplifying the pressures many young people feel oppressed by. Led by Rachel Gardner, Youthscape, this one-day seminar will equip youth practitioners and parents to respond positively to the curiosity and peer pressure young people experience, and will equip you with ways to empower young people to engage in critical thinking about what they see, hear and do.
