QUESTION: One scientist of Artificial Intelligence (AI) contends that “20 years from now, a computer program will be able to fool people into thinking that it’s human,” and another, when asked if machines could think, responded in the affirmative, arguing that we can think and we are nothing but “meat machines” (that is, machines made of flesh and blood rather than ones made, primarily, of synthetic materials). Compare and contrast the picture of human being implicit in these AI assertions to the picture found in chapters 2 and 3 of the Genesis story. That is, how do the two pictures stack up to each other as regards what it means to think and to be human. For purposes of considering the two biblical chapters, rely on the interpretation given in class of the Genesis story. (Students who wish to have a look at the two chapters of Genesis will find them, of course, in the Old Testament. The course lectures were based on the King James Version.) What is means to be human… A.I. Can make simple clear-cut choices

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
