Abstract:

"John Puddlefoot argues that machine intelligence holds no terrors for theology. Christians can absorb and make use of such technical advances. A better understanding of the achievements and difficulties of artificial intelligence can help us to understand what it is that is uniquely human." "Written in an accessible style, this book opens up a vital new debate which is set to become increasingly important as our understanding of the brain and mind improves. It suggests some of the ways in which the discussion will move in years to come, as well as some of the mistakes theologians should try to avoid if religious responses to computer/mind/brain issues are to be more profitable than the early conflicts between the Church, Galileo and Darwin."--BOOK JACKET.
