Ep. 148: AI Influence in Entertainment

When you think about AI, how often do movies like Terminator or The Matrix come to mind? Futuristic and dystopian depictions of how AI will influence mankind has been a theme in the entertainment industry for almost a century! In this episode, Kelly & Chelsea review five portrayals of AI in the movies and consider each through the lens of our Biblical worldview. The goal is to help parents consider what is true and what is false about these portrayals in order to help kids think critically about the role AI will play in reality.
