Professor John Wyatt, President of the Christian Medical Fellowship, examines the way in which advances in robotics and artificial intelligence could effect healthcare and ageing.

Artificial intelligence and robotics are changing the nature of our world, our society and the way we interact as humans.

How will this change our understanding of what it means to be human? What role can companion robots and artificial intelligence play in healthcare, in the care of people with disabilities, and those affected by mental impairment? What are the opportunities and risks that advancing technology brings and how can we prepare as Christian believers for the technological future that is round the corner?
