I am looking forward to a stimulating discussion this Sunday of ethical issues raised in movies through portrayals of artificial intelligence. Karin Mills will lead the discussion focusing on movies that are among her favorites. Come ready for to participate!

From Short Circuit and Blade Runner through the Terminator movies and even in very recent films, this issue has been treated from many different angles, with varying outlooks on the future. Your take on issues raised by the films you have seen as well as the connections that may exist between those issues and our faith traditions will be more than welcomed.

You can view the presentation used for this discussion here.
