About the Event
Join author and Folio member Michael J. Paulus Jr. for a reception and presentation of his new book Artificial Intelligence and the Apocalyptic Imagination.
The increasing role and power of artificial intelligence in our lives and world require us to imagine and shape a desirable future with this technology. Since visions of AI often draw from Christian apocalyptic narratives, current discussions about technological hopes and fears present an opportunity for a deeper engagement with Christian eschatological resources. This book argues that the apocalyptic imagination can transform how we think about and use AI, helping us discover ways artificial agency may help us create a better world.
Michael J. Paulus Jr. is dean of the library, assistant provost for educational technology, and associate professor of information studies at Seattle Pacific University. He is the co-editor of AI, Faith, and the Future (Pickwick, 2022).
