This is part one of a two-part conversation between Religica Theolab Founder Michael Reid Trice and Mark Chinen, who serves as Professor of Law at the Seattle University School of Law. Chinen received his Master of Divinity from Yale Divinity School before going on to receive his law degree from Harvard Law School. More recently, Chinen has dedicated time to writing on artificial intelligence and legal responsibility.
In this episode, Dr. Trice and Mark Chinen speak about the development of machine learning, AI’s capacity for empathy, and the moral conflict of embracing the uncanny. Take a listen!
“As long as a human is not fooled into thinking that they are dealing with another human being, then ethical questions are largely resolved. But, If we find ourselves dealing almost half the time with artificial intelligence and half the time with human beings, what happens when we have to make choices between the two?” – Mark Chinen
