On a new episode of Great Minds with Michael Medved, Michael talks with Bradley Center director Robert J. Marks, the distinguished computer engineer at Baylor University. Their theme is the ways that both evolution and artificial intelligence have been presented as able to do far more than they really can.
The Center for Science & Culture and the Bradley Center for Natural & Artificial Intelligence share more than the commonality of being sponsored by Discovery Institute. Studying Darwinian evolution and AI, respectively, scholars with the two programs find that both — Darwinism and AI — have been wildly oversold to the public. And often, intriguingly, for the same reasons and in the same way.
Despite much hype, both lack the gift of creativity that appears to be the sole possession of human beings.
