* Hugh Bourne has a degree in Internet Computing from Sussex University, and Theology degree from Middlesex University, and has always had a strong interest in where these two disciplines intersect. Alongside his pastoral duties in the Church of England, he is actively exploring what role theological perspectives may play in discussions around technology and especially the ethical and societal implications of Artificial Intelligence. Hugh's desire is to help the church critically engage with technology, neither to embrace unthinkingly or to reject prejudicially. He believes that Christian theology can have a key role to play in helping to frame ethical discussions within emerging technologies, not least because of its unwavering commitment to human flourishing and the lessons of history which so often see Christians taking the forefront in movements of scientific and societal revolution.
