The Intersection of Science and Religion with Rabbi Geoffrey A. Mitelman

The Scholar-in-Residence Weekend is designed to bring an outstanding contemporary Jewish thinker to our community in a way that will allow us not only to hear an inspiring speaker, but to also interact, to question, and to learn about Judaism in ways that will enrich us all.

Sunday, March 17: Intelligence, Consciousness or a Soul? Some Jewish Views on AI (Artificial Intelligence)

12:30pm Brunch – Social Hall

Lecture following luncheon with opportunity for dialogue with Rabbi Mitelman

How do we define “intelligence” and how do we define “artificial?” Does AI have consciousness? A soul? And while traditional Jewish texts wouldn’t know about ChatGPT, what analogies can we draw from Biblical, Rabbinic and later Jewish texts?
