Episode 13: The Ethics of AI

How will the rapid development of artificial intelligence change our world? What are the ethical concerns surrounding these developments? Does the drive toward the “singularity” (the point where AI multiplies our intelligence by 1 billion) signal the end of mankind? Is it crossing the line of “playing God”? Should we fear AI? Oppose it? Embrace it?

Bryce and Jaredith put on their Futurist hats to discuss these issues from their perspective as Pentecostals, tech junkies, and sci-fi fanboys. Bryce also happens to be a robotics programmer, so that has to count for something. This is a very different episode, but very relevant in our cultural climate. Hopefully you will find it interesting.

WARNING: This episode contains some discussions of humanoid robots and sexuality, so some content may not be appropriate for younger listeners.
