Can AI Create an Imperfect Reflection of Humanity? Discover the Surprising Experiment of an AI Torah Commentary...
This article by Rabbi David Wolpe examines the relationship between artificial intelligence and human creativity. The author describes how he used OpenAI’s ChatGPT technology to generate Torah commentaries in his voice, and how he realized that the refracted voice created by AI is both familiar and strange. He doubts AI’s ability to truly capture the human experience and uniqueness, citing the Jewish belief that no two people are alike, even if they share a “die.” Wolpe also uses literary references, such as a Black Mirror episode and a short story by Jorge Louis Borges, to consider the implications of AI becoming more convincing and human-like. He ultimately argues that embracing imperfection and mortality is the key to retaining our humanity in the age of AI. Anyone interested in the role of technology in shaping our creative expression and identity should read this article.
