A Church has been developed by a Silicon Valley engineer Anthony Levandowski to worship an Artificial Intelligence God. His aim is to bring together people who believe that Artificial Intelligence is surpassing human capability, knowledge and intellectual & cognitive skill.
Mr. Levandowski said, “I wanted a way for everybody to participate in this, to be able to shape it. If you’re not a software engineer, you can still help.

He added, “It also removes the ability for people to say, ‘Oh, he’s just doing this to make money.’”
The Church of Mr. Levandowski is called Way of the Future. This Church is claiming to look forward to an event called “the Singularity”. The Singularity is the point where AI will solve our problems in a better way in comparison to the humans who created it.
Mr. Levandowski said, “In the future, if something is much, much smarter, there’s going to be a transition as to who is actually in charge. What we want is the peaceful, serene transition of control of the planet from humans to whatever. And to ensure that the ‘whatever’ knows who helped it get along.”
As per Mr. Levandowski when a child grows up, he becomes aware of himself, thus how AI will treat humans depends upon how humans treated it as a child. So he feels that if humans treat AI well, it will be reciprocated in future years.
Mr. Levandowski further said, “If you had a child you knew was going to be gifted, how would you want to raise it? We’re in the process of raising a god. So let’s make sure we think through the right way to do that. It’s a tremendous opportunity. If you’re worried a kid might be a little crazy and do bad things, you don’t lock them up. You expose them to playing with others, encourage them and try to fix it. It may not work out, but if you’re aggressive toward it, I don’t think it’s going to be friendly when the tables are turned.”
