Dr Beth Singler is the Homerton Junior Research Fellow in Artificial Intelligence at Homerton College, University of Cambridge. Her background is as a social anthropologist of New Religious Movements, and her monograph The Indigo Children: New Age Experimentation with Self and Science (Routledge, 2017) is the first in-depth ethnography of the Indigo Children – a New Age re-conception of both children and adults using the language of both evolution and spirituality. We’ll hear more about her research into AI and Religion just now, but a relevant recent publication is her edited special issue on AI and Religion for the journal Implicit Religion, including her own articles: “An Introduction to Artificial Intelligence and Religion for the Religious Studies Scholar” and “Roko’s Basilisk or Pascal’s? Thinking of Singularity Thought Experiments as Implicit Religion”. See her Academia.edu page for more details, or follow her @bvlsingler on Twitter.
