Ghost in the Machine: AI and Human Spirituality

Venue: Wandsworth Quaker Meeting House, 59 Wandsworth High St, London, SW18 2PT f

A leading expert on artificial intelligence will speak about how developments in the field force humanity to reframe how it sees itself, in the latest in a series of public events exploring Quaker concerns in South West London.

In the talk, Ghost in the Machine: Artificial Intelligence and Human Spirituality,Kenneth Cukier, an editor at The Economist and bestselling author of books on technology, will discuss how the breakneck pace at which artificial intelligence is developing poses a challenge to humanity. The technology already exceeds people's cognitive abilities -- but can it develop a sense of the transcendental that defines human experience? In a humorous, accessible talk, Kenneth will explain how AI works and why cognitive science underscores that people are even smarter.

Kenneth says: "AI replaces the mind as the fount of all that is knowable, overturning the Enlightenment and humanist traditions. However AI has inherent shortcomings that make individuals the masters of the technology not its servants. AI is unable to develop and use 'mental models' of the world, which people do by nature. AI is all rationality, no spirituality. People possess both -- but we need to bolster the latter in counterpoise to the machines.”

Kenneth Cukier is the deputy executive editor of The Economist, and co-author of several books on technology and society, notably "Big Data", a NYT bestseller, and “Framers” on the power of mental models and the limitations of AI. He attends Richmond Quaker Meeting.
