Era of Artificial Intelligence: What Is Research, and How Is Knowledge Created? with Dr. Andrea Christelle

February 24 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

In today’s digital world, anyone can publish their writing. Anyone can make a movie. The democratization of knowledge or content creation has given a voice to untold stories. But there is a flipside. Who, or what, gets to create knowledge? Can AI systems create knowledge? When Chat GPT writes a student’s paper, is that original research? What are the different systems and standards for creating knowledge? As consumers of knowledge, how can we know what is real and what is manipulated? What is original and what is derivative? Join us for a conversation about knowledge and authenticity in the era of AI.

This program is cohosted by Maricopa County Library – El Mirage Branch.


Andrea Christelle, PhD, has a passion for engaging the public in philosophical dialog, and is a founder of Sedona Philosophy, a completely unique tour company that uses the amazing natural environment to unlock personal growth and insight. She is also the Vice Provost for Research at Diné College on Navajo Nation, where the idea of Na’al Kaah Bee Honít’i’, or creating pathways by following footprints, is a guiding principle for knowledge creation. Previously she worked for Good Systems, an interdisciplinary AI initiative at the University of Texas at Austin, and was the founder of Philosophy in the Public Interest at Northern Arizona University.
