Learning Magic and Animism in a Global Context -

Jun 9, 2023

The penultimate instalment in our AI series! This time we talk about the impact of algorithms and the mental frames of the builders of Artificial Intelligence and what that means for access to a living cosmos.

What happens when AI gets to decide what is real?

If you have already used Chat GPT, you may have found that it refuses to answer some questions -about biopolitics or geopolitics or even exopolitics. Or if it does, it simply enforces the party line. Either that or it gives you a Lisa Simpson-style caveat about how 'important it is' to respect diversity or something at the end. We have seen what happens when political information is dropped from Google results. AI will multiply that effect a thousandfold.

(As is traditional now, there is a Q&A at the end for those who choose to watch the video version.)

Either way, here is the link to the Marc Andressen piece that is referenced.
