Statement from Dr. Keith Ross, President of Missouri Baptist University
As Artificial Intelligence becomes more prevalent across all academic disciplines, businesses and the broader culture, Christian universities are uniquely positioned to provide a moral compass that guides analysis and deployment of AI in a just and responsible manner. As Christian educators and researchers, we must seize this historic opportunity to study and utilize AI’s potential, helping our students understand the seemingly boundless knowledge garnered from AI applications benefits mankind only when we are determined to instill sound judgment, critical thinking, and high ethical standards.
