In this episode, we hear from Michael Broyde, a law professor at Emory Law School,  and Berman Projects director at the Center for the Study of Law and Religion. 

Recently, Professor Broyde has turned his scholarly attention to the potential impacts of artificial intelligence on law and religion.  He and the Center’s Executive Director Whittney Barth have convened a working group on law, religion, and AI, that includes faculty from institutions around the world. The Center is also involved in two scholarly publishing projects related to law, religion, and AI. One is a symposium issue of the Journal of Law and Religion, published by Cambridge University Press, and the other is a special issue of the journal LAWS, published by MDPI with Michael Broyde and Whittney Barth as co-editors. You can visit the Center’s website for more information.

In a Work in Progress session at the Center, Professor Broyde shared his most recent work: “AI and Jewish Law: Seeing How ChatGPT 4.0 Looks at a Novel Issue.” During the talk, he explores the translation capabilities of Chat GPT 4.0 from Hebrew to English, how well Chat GPT 4.0 analyzed a novel issue for Jewish Law when prompted with a curated set of sources, and some of the implications of this and future technological developments for Jewish Law as well as for the American federal courts. After his remarks, we will hear from a few audience members as the floor opens for a wider discussion of the implications of this research.
