When thinking about automation, AI and robotics, one is struck by all the positive things that might come from their implementation.  However, in a society where your value to society derives primarily from your contributions, we may need to rethink some of our conceptions of human worth.  In his position as a minister, Andy Bryan, the pastor at Campbell United Methodist Church in Springfield, deals with the issues of self-worth and human value on a daily basis.  In this segment of STEM Spots, he and I discuss human worth related to both one’s work and to our inherent value as human beings.
