AI Transformations

AI Transformations March 30, 2021

It has been a while since I’ve written about the intersection of technology and religion. Although I have a lot of other interests that I have been focusing on, this has not ceased to be an ongoing interest of mine, and it is one that I will continue to return to. In the meantime, here are some things I’ve come across or had drawn to my attention elsewhere, not only about AI and religion but also technology and education and much else.

There is a wonderful article about a professor who has large replicas of Transformers outside his home

A study of the trolley problem/driverless cars has exposed significant differences in human morality 

There is a really good article in Inside Higher Ed about the persistence of “ZoomU.” It relates directly to discussions some of us have had on social media recently about remote learning. I wonder how many parents or learners, to say nothing of educators, are aware that simply moving your face-to-face teaching onto Zoom isn’t remote learning as it has the potential to be, as anyone with expertise would advise it to be. It is what many who lacked any training did in an emergency effort to adapt to challenging circumstances. I hope we won’t all be so fed up with Zoom that we try to avoid using it going forward. I also hope that educators will, if they haven’t already, get training in what online and remote pedagogies are optimal and how to deliver courses through them if they will continue to offer classes that can be taken by students who are not on campus and in the classroom. (Let me also praise Butler University for having dedicated instructional design staff and training to get those who weren’t up to speed to the extent possible over last summer.)
