Artificial Intelligence + Wisdom

Artificial intelligence basically works by pattern matching on a large scale.

Intelligence should not be confused with wisdom. Algorithms do not have an innate or inherent moral sense of right and wrong. That's why people can very quickly embarrass large-scale developers by turning a chatbot racist.

I'm curious what would happen if some of these big players in the AI race would pipe the Bible in as a data source, tell the algorithm to assume its true, and then see how a chatbot would respond based on those assumptions.

I know many of those executives and developers are not known for believing the Bible is God's Word, and may even be hostile to the idea. If they wanted to expand the idea further to other religious texts to accommodate those who would view that as a more balanced approach, that could also be interesting.
