    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.
