    Transhumanism, AI and the Future of Humanity

    7:00 pmAndrew Fellows | The Round Church, Cambridge

    'Ye shall be as gods'. The temptation of self-deification is as old as the book of Genesis. Much newer is the staggering array of powerful technologies we can enlist to realise our dreams of 'improving' and redefining the human person, from genetic therapy to AI. In this talk, Andrew Fellows takes us to the fundamentally religious core of transhumanism and asks some hard questions of our newfound techno-religiosity.

History In The Round Talks

The Round Church is one of Cambridge’s oldest and best-known buildings. It predates the University by almost a century. It is one of only four round churches still standing in the UK. It has been much loved and discussed by poets, preachers, antiquarians, and journalists down the centuries. And yet so much about its past remains a mystery. Debunking some popular stories about wandering Knights Templar, this talk, held in the beautiful setting of the Round Church itself, uncovers the far more fascinating truths that lay behind this amazing building. It looks at the foundation of the church in the early decades of the twelfth century and some of the ideas which led its founders to make it round.   [embed]https://roundchurchcambridge.s3.eu-west-2.amazonaws.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/26144425/robert-evans-deciphering-the-round-church.mp3[/embed]...
