Artificial Intelligence (AI) is well known in a general sense to most people through science fiction movies. But what is it really, and how does it work? Does an artificially intelligent computer or robot mean that it is sentient, that is, aware of itself? If not, what’s the difference between artificial intelligence and self-awareness? AI is all the rage; large corporations are pouring billions into creating computers and robots that can recognize patterns and think for themselves.
Bible prophecy talks about a “Beast” system where everyone is controlled, where they are unable to buy, sell, or participate in economic or social life without being part of that system. While people have been looking at RFID chips and other technology which is becoming commonplace, the agenda has moved ahead with lightning speed. Yet very few have any idea how far it has advanced – and where it really is going, even though it is almost here. The Beast System may be on the doorstep, but Christ surely is at the door.
