It's Brain Science: Ethics, Purpose, and Our Complex Minds | Picard & Khosbin

If new and improved A.I. tools can write your next essay, create Picasso-style art, or produce a believable deep-fake, it’s fair to ask: Are we manufacturing human brains?

In this episode, we dive into the complexity of the human brain — and what this means for morality, meaning, and purpose.
