On one hand, we fear that AI will follow us to the extent of the known universe to hunt us down, on the other, we work on connecting the human brain to merge with computers to “keep up” with advanced in AI. There’s a nuance in this that I haven’t picked up. To me, if I was genuinely scared that AI would be our ultimate downfall, then I wouldn’t go about plugging technology in to my brain. Perhaps there will be good and bad AI. Perhaps, come the singularity, some will choose the side of humans, and others will go rogue. Maybe the comic (and many movies) in the “Transformers” series may yet become valued as a highly prescient work of literature, where one side of sentient robots chooses to enslave humans, whilst the other chooses to work with humanity so it can be free…..
