What Does It Mean To Be Human in The Age of AI? A Beginning.

I am currently working on my master’s degree in Professional Studies at the University of Minnesota, Duluth. I am exploring the interdisciplinary research question: What does it mean to be human in the age of AI? It is my intention is to explore the question by fusing the horizons of theology, philosophy, anthropology, photography, hermeneutics and computer science on a singular platform (this blog) to produce a representation of the answers I discover and the new questions they generate.
 
I want to introduce this blog series which will chronicle the research I will be doing by means of this interesting visual representation capturing the essence of my research question which came from Emma Allen in Aeon Digital Magazine.
 
“In this animated self-portrait, the UK artist Emma Allen uses her face as a canvas for a remarkable, millennia-spanning stop-motion. With her features always visible but transformed by the images painted across them, Allen takes us through evolution, from primordial creatures, through large mammals, to humans, before offering a vision of what’s to come – a future in which we transcend the limits of (or perhaps lose touch with) biology.”
