    The fears of "a.i;" remind one of the fears of cloning; a poorly understood subject that elicited unfounded paranoia.

    To be perfectly honest AI terrifies me.

    This is a good article about how AI can be used deceitfully. AI Is Killing the Uncanny Valley and Our Grasp on Reality | Backchannel

    It may eventually be able to make it look like a person said something they didn’t actually say or do something they didn’t actually do. Can you imagine what that would mean for the world? We would no longer be able to trust what our eyes and ears are telling us.

    What our eyes and ears tell us is only a partial tale at best. Physics shows us that our perceptions are of illusions. Psychology, psychiatry and physiology show us that our perceptions are subjective.

    We are a species in need of advancing to the next level. That level may well be the marriage of the human intelligence with the 'intelligent' inventions we can make. We merely need to find the constructive fashion to accomplish this.

    Either we will use "a.i." well, or we will use it poorly. Like any technology, once learned, it will not be unlearned. Using it to help us perfect systems that have a potential to function well would be a good use. Using it otherwise, or allowing it to develop itself, would be yet another folly of man.

    On "Bloomberg", an economics and investment expert said that the Chinese have a great potential advantage in the us of "a.i." because of the centralized nature of their decision making.
    This re-enforces the idea that a U.S. government modified and streamlined would protect republican principles while advancing security, both economic and geopolitical.

    Mark Adlard wrote a book about just such a society in 1971.

    The book is called 'Interface'.

    There are two sequels, 'Volteface' and 'Multiface', that are equally as good.

    Now that previous levels of gridlock are about to be exceeded, perhaps people will be more interested in a style of government that uses intelligence. This old way has outlived its effectiveness (if ever it was).

    When Congress is working effectively, they produce copious amounts of legislation ... Gridlock is the optimal form of government. Huge drama, minimal impact.
