The AI Torah Commentary, Volume 2: Exodus has been published!

A brief note, reflecting on some conversations I've been having about what this is and isn't: AI is going to disrupt everything, especially online content. It's all new. It's all fraught. Here's what I actually did in creating this commentary: conceived of the project, composed an introduction, selected the voices from the past, crafted specific prompts for chatgpt, edited for accuracy, formatted, created the cover, submitted for review with the independent publisher, and published. That should suffice for the ethics. Nothing purports to be "the voice of," but rather "in the style of", and all figures chosen fit the parameter of no longer being alive and not having spoken hatefully of others. I feel good about those aspects. But this whole AI thing is very complicated. I've taught about this every morning since the day Volume 1 went public (you can find it on the UJA-Federation of New York FB page in the archived videos starting last Tuesday). All 5 volumes should be completed within the next few weeks. My goal is to prompt thoughtful conversation and debate about this brave, strange new technology, what it means and what it doesn't, how it differs from classic techniques like bibliodrama and how it resembles imaginative, historical fiction. Much to discuss.
