    • I dunno, Ben. As I get blown away by each advance of AI and the unexpected ways it thinks, I inch closer to where Elon Musk is. He thinks AI is more dangerous than nuclear weapons.

      I think presidents Putin and Xi really get this and are focused on it, while Britain dithers over Brexit and us over a border wall.

    • I guess I didn’t really think of that angle, but yes, you are absolutely correct that AI could be used for very devious and cunning purposes. No question about it. But, what would be behind such purposes are evil humans. More broadly speaking the same can be said for technology, which AI is a branch of. Technology can be used as a force for good, but in the hands of the wrong people can become a weapon for evil. We certainly live in both exciting and scary times in that vein.

    • The debate with the AI bot was very interesting. AI was much more informative than the human debater but definitely fell a little short on critical thinking. One of the developers who was interviewed said it the best when he mentioned the tech was more for assisting human awareness than engaging another in a debate. Just the assist in human reasoning alone could be a significant development. With the proper human controls of course. When AI takes over the controls is when we are screwed. Very impressive though.!!!
