    The Lost Art of Questioning: Can AI Bring It Back?

    This is a reading of my Substack Article- 
    The Lost Art of Questioning: Can AI Bring It Back? https://bobhutchins.substack.com/p/the-lost-art-of-questioning-can-ai
    AI's evolving abilities highlight the humanness woven through good questions. (Prompts) As AI gets smarter, might it even start teaching us back by teaching us to ask those open-ended, thought-provoking questions that truly make us learn and grow?

    Here's a hopeful thought: perhaps AI can transcend mere information gathering, evolving into a catalyst for a culture that nurtures intellectual exploration. I unpack this more in my article.

Seeking Truth

I have know Bob for many years. I can vouch for his integrity. He has always looked for truth and he continues to do that today. He looks for different view points and respects differing opinions. To date he has had a large array of guest and each one is unique. I don’t agree with all of his guests but I have learned something from each one.

Surprised by Joy

Whenever I finish one of these episodes, I pull out my headphones and I feel a little more encouraged, a little more hopeful, and a little more open minded as I go throughout my day.
