S2:E7 Theology & Human Enhancement

Is a cyborg a human being? How might technological enhancement or therapy help us more fully participate in being human? In this episode we talk with theologian Victoria Lorrimar and neuroengineer Chris Rozell about artificial intelligence, human enhancement, and the questions this raises for us as human beings.

Victoria Lorrimar is a lecturer of Systematic Theology at Trinity College Queensland. Her research focuses on theological anthropology and how a theological understanding of what it means to be human can engage the prospect of technologies that promise to enhance human characteristics and abilities.

Chris Rozell is currently the Julian T. Hightower Chair and Professor of Electrical & Computer Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Dr. Rozell is an educator and researcher developing technology to enable interactions between biological and artificial intelligence systems.
