Artificial Intelligence: Implications for Ethics and Religion
"I think that AI is going to potentially shift our understanding of who we are. It could either do that really positively, or really negatively. I think the positive side of it is that it can help us realize that we should be spending more time as caring and compassionate beings who are helping each other out. Or it could be completely dehumanizing, turning us into cogs in a giant machine. The way the economic system works is it wants to turn us into cogs in a giant machine. So the question is, how do we resist that in such a way that we can actually get the benefits from AI?"
