A former executive at Google has filed papers with the IRS to set up a non-profit religious organization that can be seen as a church of artificial intelligence, where technology would be worshiped and a godhead would be created.
The non-profit religious organization, called “Way of the Future,” will aim “to develop and promote the realization of a Godhead based on artificial intelligence and through understanding and worship of the Godhead [to] contribute to the betterment of society,” PJ Media reports, quoting from IRS documents.
The founder of the group is Anthony Levandowski, a multi-millionaire engineer at the heart of the trade secrets lawsuit between Uber and Waymo, Google’s self-driving car company, according to Wired.
It’s “about creating a peaceful and respectful transition of who is in charge of the planet from people to people + ‘machines,'” the group’s webpage says. “Given that technology will ‘relatively soon’ be able to surpass human abilities, we want to help educate people about this exciting future and prepare a smooth transition.”
