Vulnerable like God: Perfect Machines and Imperfect Humans

Research output: Online publication or Non-textual formOnline publication or WebsitePopular

Abstract

If AI teaches us anything about ourselves, it is that our uniqueness (and perhaps the image of God) is likely located in the vulnerability and quirkiness of our cognition, and not in our rationality and problem-solving abilities. Through God’s incarnation, suffering, and voluntary death, we have been revealed a deeply vulnerable side of the divine. We are most like God not when we are at our smartest or strongest, but when we engage in the kind of hyper-empathetic, though not entirely logical, behaviour, that enables authentic relationships.
