Madeleine Pennington and Nathan Mladin’s report examining emotional responses to death and dying in the UK. 27/11/2023
Nathan Mladin, on behalf of Theos, signs joint letter to the Secretary of State for Science, Innovation and Technology cautioning proper attention be given to ethical questions surrounding AI. 02/11/2023
On behalf of Theos, Senior Researcher Nathan Mladin signed a letter to the Secretary of State for Science, Innovation and Technology cautioning that the “implications of Artificial Intelligence raise significant ethical and arguably existential questions that demand our collective attention.”
The 19 signatories, who represent a range of faith, belief and civil society leaders say “it is essential that all parts of society can fully contribute to the principles and processes that will shape future governance”, and that “short–term commercial and economic interests will outweigh long–term social and ethical concerns if we do not find ways to engage a wide range of religious and cultural perspectives.”
The group, who met last week to discuss the implications of Artificial Intelligence, under the chairmanship of The Rt Hon Sajid Javid MP, developed six points for consideration ahead of the AI Safety Summit.
