1. Rene Descartes argues that, while most of life is uncertain, he can prove–without a shadow of a doubt–that he exists. What proof does he offer to support this claim? Does Descartes believe that the body is a pre-requisite for existence? Why or why not? Please use your own words to answer these questions, rather than relying upon direct quotes.
2. According to Manjoo, what is different about new AI “language model” software? What are his concerns about the societal impacts of this software? Do you see any other legal, regulatory, ethical or other concerns emerging from this type of software?
