When you consider artificial intelligence, you may think about self-driving cars, voice automated responses from your smart speaker, Facebook bots sending you ads based upon your search queries, or virtual reality experiences provided by an Oculus VR headset. On today’s edition of Family Talk, Jason Thacker, a scholar in philosophy, ethics, and public theology, discusses with Dr. Tim Clinton his new book, The Age of AI. Thacker counsels Christians against the extremes of unbridled excitement or fear in this new high-tech frontier. The biblical worldview is clear: as humans, God created us in His own image. Artificial intelligence is simply a tool and will never match the value of a human being.
We live in an age of increasingly pervasive artificial intelligence, including Virtual Reality and the porn industry’s many disturbing applications. When paired with a materialistic worldview, artificial intelligence can leave us more isolated and lonely. On today’s edition of Family Talk, Jason Thacker, author of The Age of AI, addresses the Christian moral responsibility and accountability to our Creator. We’re called to love God and our neighbors as we love ourselves, and we’re created for physical community, not digital.
