AI is already fundamentally transforming our world, and in the coming years will have an enormous impact on almost every aspect of our lives. So the ethical questions surrounding its development are urgent and important. Rabbi Jonathan Sacks argues that we must always be able to choose our fate, in the full dignity of responsibility, never forgetting that machines were made to serve human beings, not the other way around. Contributors: Mustafa Suleyman, Co-founder and Head of Applied AI at DeepMind; Nick Bostrom, Philosophy Professor at the University of Oxford; Students from Queens' School in Hertfordshire. Producer: Dan Tierney Series Editor: Christine Morgan

    Episode 7: Is Society a Myth?

    42:24

    For most of history, societies have been held together by a shared moral code. But half a century ago, the West embarked on a great experiment: a move from "We" to "I," from "We're all in this together" to "I'm free to be myself." Recently, there's been a reaction against individualism in favour of the group. But what's returned isn't a sense of society as a whole, but rather, subgroups, defined by faith, ethnicity, gender, or sexual orientation. What's lost, Rabbi Jonathan Sacks argues, is our sense of collective belonging and the common good.
