Anne Foerst was a research scientist in the Artificial Intelligence (AI)
Laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a Research
Associate at the Center for the Studies of Values in Public Life at Harvard
Divinity School. As a participant in a project in which a robot is being built
as an analogue to a human infant, Foerst is interested in demonstrating that
dialogue between AI and contemporary theology is of tremendous significance.
Additionally, she plans to analyze the extent to which AI and the Cognitive
Sciences influence the values and self-understanding of Western Society.
