A thought provoking piece considering a technological development that affects us all...

"The world of AI is here, and vistas of immense and exciting possibility lie before us. That much is certain. 

But I must admit, my initial amazement at first encountering ChatGPT quickly gave way to unease and a sense that something essential could be about to be lost. I guess it’s possible that we’ll be able to channel the wonders of AI in a direction that contributes to our collective flourishing … but do we really have the foresight and resources to guide us and avoid unexpected consequences? Moderns have frequently been guilty of naivety when it comes to the impact of technology and the wisdom to carefully consider the wider implications of these instruments of magical powers."
