God and robots: will AI transform religion?

Artificial intelligence is changing the way we interact with everything from food to healthcare to travel and also religion.

Experts say that major world religions are discussing their relationship with AI, and some are beginning to incorporate this technology into their worship. Robot priests can recite prayers, conduct funerals, and even comfort those experiencing a spiritual crisis.

BBC Global Religion reporter Sofia Bettiza has explored whether AI’s relationship to religion is just a gimmick, or if it can really transform the way people experience faith.
