Play • 38 min

Muhammad Aurangzeb is a Data Scientist, an associate professor at University of Washington and the founder of ‘Islam & Science Fiction’, a website dedicated to sci-fi stories, novels, movies with Islamic themes

Aurangzeb is a Data Scientist at KenSci, a US based, artificial intelligence healthcare start-up dedicated to predict your future health.

Aurangzeb is one of the few Muslims in tech that is committed to determine the impact of artificial intelligence on Islamic principles and how these principles and ethics can be coded in to future technologies such as the autonomous vehicle.

We talk to Aurangzeb about what is artificial intelligence, the influence of AI in our daily lives, why the application of Islamic principles (Fiqh) and ethics should be applied to AI technologies and how Muslims can contribute towards a future with Muslim lifestyle compliant technology

We had an insightful and fun conversation with Aurangzeb using the autonomous vehicle, AI Hajj and the hand-slaughtered vs. machine-slaughtered conundrum as examples.
