Here is a horrific essay from Maureen Dowd about Elon Musk's bizarre AI crusade:
Elon Musk is famous for his futuristic gambles, but Silicon Valley’s latest rush to embrace artificial intelligence scares him. And he thinks you should be frightened too. Inside his efforts to influence the rapidly advancing field and its proponents, and to save humanity from machine-learning overlords.
Anyone who thinks AI and all of humanity's other bad ideas and traits won't follow us around wherever we go like stink on shit is NUTS !!!
My advice? Don't let a handful of AI-worshipping maniacs destroy our economy and perhaps even our species in a race to create machines that will be "better" than us in every way.
