ENGAGING Artificial Intelligence with Jason Thacker (ep. 43)
Play • 55 min

On this episode of the podcast, we talk with ethicist Jason Thacker about engaging artificial intelligence. The explosion of AI tools like ChatGPT, has led to both grand visions and grave concerns about the future, including the future of education and the future of work. In this conversation we seek to define the terms and seek biblical direction for our anxieties, hopes, and tech practices. Among the questions we discuss:

  • How AI was already present in our everyday experience prior to the new tools
  • A range of definitions and distinctions: narrow AI vs. general AI, superintelligence vs. the singularity
  • The structure and direction of AI, and how the image of God can guide our engagement
  • What we should and shouldn't worry about and what we should and shouldn't celebrate
  • Counsel for students and teachers when it comes to AI
