Publisher's Summary

You don't have to be a computer scientist to get involved in the discussion about where artificial intelligence and technology are going.

What will the year 2084 hold for you - for your friends, for your family, and for our society? Are we doomed to the grim dystopia imagined in George Orwell's 1984?

In 2084, scientist and philosopher John Lennox will introduce you to a kaleidoscope of ideas: the key developments in technological enhancement, bioengineering, and, in particular, artificial intelligence. You will discover the current capacity of AI, its advantages and disadvantages, the facts and the fiction, as well as potential future implications.

The questions posed by AI are open to all of us. And they demand answers. A work that is made to challenge all listeners, no matter your worldview, 2084 shows how the Christian worldview, properly understood, can provide evidence-based, credible answers that will bring you real hope for the future of humanity.

another stellar work from Lennox!

Lennox continues to challenge me to think more deeply about current issues in light of biblical truth.
also if, like me, you are at all hesitant about things eschatological- this is a great foray into the topic

Great book

Loved this book. It is very informative and interesting. It is a very Christian point of view, but it would be interesting to all who question where we are headed as a people in regards to AI.

A fresh perspective on AI

I appreciated the author's overview of the advances of artificial intelligence, both narrow and general. Then having given the general thought and popular opinion, the author gives his own take, shaped by his own beliefs. It was refreshing to hear.

This is not science, it's Christain fairtail

I admit to not getting past the 1st 3 chapters but I got very tired of Bible references quoted a fact, like the Adam and Eve fairytale. This book is hardly scientificly.

Lennox + Brierley = Perfection

Justin Brierely is the perfect narrator for John Lennox. The only narrator who competes with him is Lennox himself, reading his own work. There are other narrators of Lennox here in Audible, who frankly impair Lennox. Too monotone, and therefore hard to track in pithy Lennox material. Brierley (and Lennox) rock!

Clarity of thought and tempered narrative

Informative assessments that ground the modern penchant for mixing scientific projections with a touch of fiction.

Cheap stuff

Misleading title. This is a cheap, poorly written religious proselytism. Shame on the Editor. Cheating with 2084.

Poor Narration

Justin Brierley may be an excellent choice as narrator for British listeners, but as an American listener I find him intolerable. He completely ruins the information for me and leaves me no choice but to return the book and order a print version. Someone ought to know better than to subject listeners to a British narrator whose accent has all the charm of a rusty wheel, in my opinion.

A timely, fascinating little book.

This book is concise and well written and as with his other works demonstrates the extraordinarily wide and deep knowledge of Science, Philosophy and Biblical Christianity. The conclusions it draws seem to be philosophically strong and logically sound. There really are very few authors who can draw from such a breadth of knowledge and comment authoritatively on such topics and in such a refreshing way. Along with fellow intellectual titans: Dr William Lane Craig and Professor Anthony Flew: Lennox is one of my favourite authors. In my opinion this book is well worth reading.

interesting look at the AI future ahead

great narration of an interesting book. Challenging us to compare the future with the past.
