Join us in talking to Dr. Joshua Smith, who is a pastor, holds a PhD in theology and is passionate about helping the Christian community navigate tough questions related to robotics and AI. This episode focuses on the function of social robotics and the potential impact of this technology, now and in the future.

We will specifically dive into the ethics of robotic technology as it gets increasingly closer to the ability to mimic human relationship. Dr. Smith wrote his dissertation and focuses his continuing research on what the Christian community needs to know about Robotics and Artificial Intelligence.

One of the topics brought out in the conversation is an app called Replica, that is designed to mimic conversational intimacy. Dr. Smith gives his opinion on how close it gets to imitating the relationship building process. Join us for this captivating discussion on the future of technology and how the Christian community can start having a conversation about it!
