Abstract The past 10 years have seen unprecedented advances in Artificial Intelligence, through ever-larger deep neural networks. AI is already (often invisibly) shaping our daily lives, with vast opportunities to benefit humanity in applications from healthcare to autonomous vehicles. How can we address the risks around bias, privacy, safety and accountability, which are becoming more apparent as AI capabilities accelerate ? How will AI affect the future of work and society ? The rise of AI also poses fundamental questions for science, theology and philosophy about what it means to be human and intelligent, which will influence the choices we make in shaping the future of AI. Are humans “just another machine”, and what is the nature of personhood in the age of AI ?
