    What do you mean Tax Man?
    Do you mean fake Constitutionalists who loudly complain when Obama abuses govt to impose unconstitutional ACA mandates. But applaud Trump for using executive orders to bypass the legislature and raise tariffs?

    Or do you mean when Trump complains about fake news, but spread false accusations to slander Ted Cruz?

    You mean that sort of intelligence???

    Actually, current computers (binary system) aren't capable of the amount of processing speed required for true AI.

    However........................................

    Recent advancements in quantum computers, and the fact that they are very close to figuring out how to make them work, is a very real concern. Especially since those quantum computers have vastly more processing power than our current binary ones.

    If you think AI is terrifying wait until it has a quantum computer brain

    You were confused. The election of Drumpf marked the first time a certified narcissistic buffoon was elected to POTUS without popular support.

    No one has ever had a problem with anyone standing for the racist anthem. People had a problem with others choosing to kneel. Said buffoon was chief among them.

    There is no reason to fear AI. Now there may be a reason to fear how its used but in of itself its just a tool.

    Problem though is at some point AI will be building the other AI because they will be able to do it better than Humans.... what if they decide by them selves to eliminate the kill switch?

    Computer science and psychology experts from Cardiff University and MIT have shown that groups of autonomous machines demonstrate prejudice by simply identifying, copying and learning this behaviour from one another.

    It may seem that prejudice is a phenomenon specific to people that requires human cognition to form an opinion – or stereotype – of a certain person or group.

    Some types of computer algorithms have already exhibited prejudice, such as racism and sexism, based on learning from public records and other data generated by humans.

    However, the latest study demonstrates the possibility of AI evolving prejudicial groups on their own.
    More disturbing are recent reports that AI "brains" can also beco..................

    When our super-advanced 'thinking' machines start laughing at us for our ridiculous spiritual beliefs and other handicapping concepts, the call will be to either unplug them or accept their objective viewpoint. Instinctively, this is the fear some feel.
    As for killer robots, how could they be worse than what we have produced as unthinking, order-obeying soldiers?
