In this bonus interview for the series Science Uprising, philosopher Jay Richards discusses the growing fear that Artificially Intelligent (AI) machines will replace most human workers. Drawing on his book The Human Advantage, Richards argues that humans retain special qualities that cannot be replaced by “smart machines.” In fact, smart machines may free humans to focus on their unique talents and capabilities.
