Good lessons from an unexpected source...Tiktok :)

  God does work in mysterious ways.  He speaks to us even in Tiktok. And this is what my fave friars will be talking about below.  Enjoy.  

How AI can be dangerous?

 Computer systems have always been limited to the quality of input that it receives.  In other words, it has always been garbage in, garbage out.  No matter how good the quality of the software and the hardware.  Feed it with garbage and it spews out garbage.



Now this had me thinking about AI and the perceived dangers that the experts have voiced out over them.  Are the dangers partly due that most people that use them aren't that highly intellectual at all and that they'll feed them with more garbage data rather than useful ones.  AIs are trained to learn the data input to them but the sad truth is, there are more stupid people than sensible ones.

I've recently tried chatGPT and I let it try to improve on a blog that I wrote before.  As expected, it resulted to a piece that is well structured and pleasing to read.  What concerned me was that the thought was made completely opposite to what I originally wanted to convey.  I am anti-woke and so was the content of my original message.  The result was pro-woke and this raised a lot of red flags for me.  AIs main weakness would be that if people fill it up with their biased information, then it would think that these patterns of thinking are the norm rather than an exception. 

If we think that Google or Facebook as being able to manipulate people to lean more on their biases and cause a divide among people then these new and upcoming AI tools can do more than twice the damage.

Upon Friar Review: Glowing reviews for The Chosen

 I like the Youtube channel Upon Friar Review.  It's about two Franciscan friars reviewing movies and shows in this channel and I love the way how they deepen my understanding of my Christian faith with the movies and shows that they review. And I am very glad that they have reviewed one of my favourite shows today: The Chosen.  I also like the fact that I share most of their point-of-view about the shows and they teach me as well about it.  So below are the Youtube links as they review Seasons 1 and 2 of The Chosen.   Also, I've linked the headings below to related Amazon items that may interest you.

The 12 Apostles

  In these days he went out to the mountain to pray; and all night he continued in prayer to God. And when it was day, he called his disciples, and chose from them twelve, whom he named apostles; Simon, whom he named Peter, and Andrew his brother, and James and John, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon who was called the Zealot, and Judas the son of James, and Judas Iscariot, who became a traitor.

The Book of Job: Synopsis and Lessons

  The Book of Job is a part of the Hebrew Bible and the Old Testament of the Christian Bible. It is considered one of the most profound and challenging books in the Bible. The central character is Job, a wealthy and righteous man living in the land of Uz. He is known for his piety and devotion to God. Job's life takes a dramatic and tragic turn when Satan challenges his faithfulness. Satan suggests to God that Job's righteousness is a result of his prosperity and that he would curse God if he were to face suffering. God allows Satan to test Job's faith, but with the condition that he does not harm Job physically. Job's suffering begins with the loss of his wealth, his children, and his health. He is afflicted with painful sores and is left in misery. Throughout his ordeal, Job's friends, Eliphaz, Bildad, and Zophar, come to visit him and attempt to provide explanations for his suffering. They suggest that Job must have sinned grievously to warrant such punishment, u
