    Role: Principal Investigator
    Description: A large multiyear research initiative examining the impacts of technologies on human relationships, and psychological and sociological life. The initiative funded an interdisciplinary cohort of scholar of religion grantees from leading institutions cross the country. It took the position that emerging technologies often evoke fundamental questions about human life and experience, such as what it means to be human, questions of consciousness, empathy, truth, and connection--questions that have often been explored from within the prism of spiritual and religious thought and experience. Funded projects drew on cutting-edge religion scholarship from across academic disciplines and religious traditions, in order to shed new light on technological development and use, with implications for both innovation and ethics. The initiative explored research findings and their implications with influential technology firms such as Google, OpenAI, Neuralink, IDEO, Twitch, and NAVA. The initiative helped support 14 books; more than 50 scholarly chapters and articles; popular articles in the New York Times, The Atlantic, Vox, Aeon, The Conversation, San Francisco Chronicle, and Tricycle; and more than 80 scholarly presentations.
