  •  The Rebellion of the AI... (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:
    Eric Stetson

    One thing that is never considered is that the AI will simply develop it's own will and consciously decide to not work or to only work to it's own ends.

    Which may or may not lead to the extinction of the human race. Or the keeping of us as pets or forms of amusement. Assuming AI would ever develop some sort of "emotion."

    AI is fundamentally Alien in nature. It would have an intelligence that is, well... unfathomable. Like a Cthulhu made of micro-chips and wires. We have no idea if this consciousness is even controllable by humans. These wealthy families may become pets to the future AI. Or it develops a benevolent nature, who knows.
