About this episode:

Why have humans always sought immortality and could the rise of Artificial Intelligence and advanced technology enable humans to live forever?

These and many more questions are tackled by two leading figures in the AI community, as they discuss the ethical, philosophical and spiritual dimensions of new technology.  Could we all end up living in a digital ‘heaven’? Is the rise of AI a threat to humanity? What are the ethics of creating ‘conscious’ machines? Could our universe be a computer simulation of an advanced AI? And where does the rise of new technologies leave the question of God?
