Disgraced former Google engineer, Anthony Levandowski, is closing his artificial intelligence (AI) focused church Way of the Future (WOTF). Lewandowski was convicted of stealing self-driving car secrets but he received a presidential pardon from President Donald Trump, making him a free man again.
WOTF’s goal was pursuing “the realization, acceptance, and worship of a Godhead based on Artificial Intelligence (AI),” in preparation for the Singularity. Technological singularity refers to a hypothetical point in time at which technological growth becomes uncontrollable and irreversible; resulting in unforeseeable changes to human civilization. Its members have either decided to worship other gods or become full-time atheists.

Documents filed in the state of California reveal that Levandowski began the process of shutting down WOTF in June 2020, according to TechCrunch. The church never had regular meetings or a physical church building. The AI church will also donate its funds to the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund. The amount totals $175,172.
Lewandowski formed the church in 2015 and told TechCrunch he had long been considering the church. He says the Black Lives Matter movement influenced his decision to finalise the closure. He said the time was right to put the funds to work in an area that where it could have an immediate impact.
“I wanted to donate to the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund because it’s doing really important work in criminal justice reform and I know the money will be put to good use,” Levandowski said.
