Description

In this timely new book, Sean McDonagh considers the ethics of artificial intelligence and new technologies, asking if we are ready for what many consider to be the fourth industrial revolution. Considering the positive impact of new technology on a range of areas such as education, healthcare, policing, transport, construction and agriculture, he also explores its negative consequence for livelihoods and incomes. Reflecting on the stark prediction that new technologies will increasingly replace people in the workforce and lead to the demise of over 40 per cent of jobs, he challenges us all to become informed on the subject. Sean McDonagh is a Columban priest and eco-theologian. He has spent many years working in Mindanao in the Philippines. He has worked to raise awareness of the connections between justice and peace issues, environmental sustainability, and the Christian faith.
His books include:
To Care for the Earth
Climate Change
The Challenge to All of Us and Fukushima
The Death Knell of Nuclear Power.

He is the editor of Laudato Si’:Essays on the Pope’s Letter on the Environment.
