This course explores the social, ethical and religious implications of some of the rapidly proliferating technological developments in the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI). In the interest of equipping faith leaders for the crucial work of applying the ethical insights of our respective religious traditions to crucial and urgent social questions, we begin asking questions such as: What is AI? What are its possibilities and limitations? What are some of the social ethical, spiritual, and religious implications of its widespread adoption-including its profound effects on economics, surveillance, healthcare, politics, and nearly every aspect of human life?
