DOI: 10.1558/equinox.40815


Buddhism can help humanity and world leaders to deal with the existential crisis and ethical debate attached to our journey toward The Singularity. By 2045, we will be living as post-humans alongside cyborgs, mind clones, and digital humans. The guidance Buddhist ethics can bring to the various ethical boards that are being created will be relevant to 520 million Buddhists globally and other world religions, too, as they try to integrate the paradigm shifts emerging from AI advances.
