Hank’s Prologue:

  • Hank tackles the question: Is artificial intelligence taking over? As a result of many popular science fiction movies about artificial intelligence, the CHRISTIAN RESEARCH JOURNAL has produced an article addressing this concern titled, “Who’s Afraid of HAL?” The fear of AI taking over is not just the stuff of sci-fi nightmares, but is also shared by icons such as Stephen Hawking and Bill Gates. They need not fear however, because there is an essential difference between human minds and machines. The mind has metaphysical properties to which the machine can never attain. The subjective texture of your conscious mental experiences is different than anything that is simply physical. A machine can never produce a mind; therefore, computers will never become conscious, independent, and dangerous.
