Two New AI&F Collaborators: Museum of the Bible and GLOO

One of AI&F’s top three goals for 2023 is developing working relationships with strategic partners for greater leveraging of faith voices in the broader AI conversation. We’re excited to announce two such relationships just formed!

The Museum of the Bible right off the Mall in Washington DC uses ground-breaking museum technology to show how the Hebrew and Christian Bibles came to be and their impact on broader culture. MOTB’s new special exhibit, Scripture and Science: Our Universe, Ourselves, Our Place, builds on some of the same themes that propel our mission. It shows how the Bible’s ancient wisdom has sustained and strengthened scientific, evidence-based discovery from the ancient Greeks and Romans through the Middle Ages, Reformation, and Enlightenment, right up to our own Information Age.

Our new Working Team will provide themes, ideas, and experts for a projected series of videos this fall and a conference next summer on AI and the Bible. Both videos and conference will drill down on the already strong discussion of technology in the special exhibit.

GLOO is a leading for-profit company aiming to empower the Christian Church to responsibly navigate and engage the evolving landscape of artificial intelligence (AI). GLOO’s board chair is Pat Gelsinger, the CEO of Intel. Our partner Religious Freedom and Business Foundation singled out Gelsinger last year for his dedication to integrity and work/faith integration in the workplace.

Last week, GLOO announced The AI & the Church Initiative, naming AI&F as a key collaborator. The Initiative includes multiple components including collaborative funding, events, resource hubs, content, and participation in a cross-industry working group for the responsible use of AI in ministry.

Joining this initiative with GLOO brings us into a working group of for-profit and non-profit organizations coming together to align and define standards for the appropriate use of artificial intelligence in the faith ecosystem.  We seek to bring theological depth and additional technological sophistication to issues GLOO is highlighting, especially around the ethical use of data and centrality of well-earned trust to any use of AI technology in faith mission.

We are particularly interested in AI and the Church Hub, an aggregating platform intended to offer the latest AI news, event updates, insights, and recommend technologies from top thought leaders. Church leaders can stay informed about the evolving landscape of AI and its potential implications for the Church. Just as we provide expert sources on theology and technology to partners like Christianity Today, this new hub looks to become a powerful way to wisely inform Christian leaders and laity about both the challenges and opportunities of AI for faith mission.

For our other faith traditions, please advise at of similar platforms and hubs – we’ll gladly call attention to them and explore similar arrangements, consistent with our nonprofit educational mission.
