Phil is a philosopher and author who writes extensively about the intersection of religion and technology. He’s also a regular contributor at the Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies.

I spoke with him about why super-intelligence could come back to haunt us, how religious thinking mixed with weapons could bring us closer to doom, and whether we can reason with those who want to get closer to the afterlife.
