I'm concerned that we have a legal system incapable of addressing our quick technological development. The problem with rapid tech development is that it leaves little time for reflection.

I'm not panicky about AI, which will likely neither give us the Singularity or Skynet. But I am concerned about the careless automation of society and that technologies we don't understand have been implemented into our daily lives (i.e. the automated trading computers that briefly crashed the stock market).

Why do you think the likelihood is not there? I'm thinking it's 15-20 years away.

I'm with Kim Stanley Robinson:
"I'm fine with AI, because I don't believe in it in the usual way it is interpreted, as machine consciousness. I don't think that will happen, because brains and machines are very different things, and will end up always doing different things. The tendency to regard the brain as a machine should be easy to dodge by considering how we have successively considered it as a clock, a steam engine, a hologram, and now a computer; none of them are good analogies, not even our current favorites.

So 'artificial intelligence' really will come down to machine algorithms designed for human uses, and when we understand AI as that, we can begin to think about the algorithms and the uses, without getting into anything more metaphysical or fantastical. We will certain project personalities onto machines, we already do that, but it is a projection and we have to keep that in mind."

The Singularity hypothesis' roots are more philosophical than scientific, and its treatment by its ardent adherents suggests that it may ultimately have a religious component.

Seems to be getting very good reviews. The interesting thing is that it has divided the feminazis/feminists straight down the middle in their opinion of whether or not it is a "feminist" picture.

A dearth of human intelligence remains the bigger threat. But looking forward to seeing Ex Machina, very promising reviews.

Quite fascinating to think that in the 200,000 or so years that modern homo sapiens have existed, it's only in the last 72 years - a mere sliver in that stretch of time - that we've developed the means to eradicate our species entirely.

They can't even make my robot hoover behave itself so I'm not too worried that machines will be taking over humanity just yet.

As to the OP, yes, AI is something worth fearing. Read Nick Bostrom's Superintelligence for the inside gen. Our curiosity and our hubris could very will finish us off, and perhaps sooner than later.
