Not Just Smarter — Wiser! A Quaker Approach to Artificial Intelligence as Part of Earthcare
Nov 30 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

In this workshop, Gray Cox will expand on the message of his recently published book Smarter Planet or Wiser Earth?: how Quakers must deal with the kinds of social change we need to address the challenges presented by the Sixth Great Extinction, Climate Change, and the threats of nuclear war and runaway technology with AI.

AI is transforming our relationships with nature and the challenges of combining different forms of intelligence in machines, humans and other natural organisms in wiser ways. We will explore ways of framing AI through an Earthcare lens as well as practical, specific proposals for things we can do as a Quaker community.

Gray Cox teaches philosophy, peace studies, language learning, and artificial intelligence as part of the College of the Atlantic’s program in Human Ecology. He is a long-term member of Acadia Friends Meeting and a co-founder and the current Clerk of the Quaker Institute for the Future.

Join us on Thursday, November 30th, at 7 pm Eastern/4 pm Pacific! You can register here.

First Sunday Reading for December 2023
Dec 3 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

Testimony of Unity

Unity is found is God’s will.  If we are divided, when we listen in the Spirit together, the way forward will become clear.

Listen patiently and seek the truth which people’s opinions may contain for you.

Cultivate affectionate regard and mutual care for each other.

Do not allow the strength of your convictions to betray you into making statements or allegations that are unfair or untrue. That are unfair or untrue.  It is possible that you may be mistaken.

Advices & Queries

  • When problems and conflicts arise, how do we work to resolve them in a spirit of love and humility?
  • How do we let go of our individual desires and let the Holy Spirit lead us to unity?
  • How careful are we to avoid manipulating and exploiting one another?

Faith and Practice, NPYM, Religious Society of Friends. P. 74-78
