Geek stuff, sci-fi... We've highlighted the dire warnings of Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk in recent months regarding the perils of artificial intelligence, but this week he actually managed to raise the bar in terms of making A.I. seem scary. More at Mashable. My take: I worked on AI 20 years ago (wow, time flies). I don't believe that we will ever create anything truly sentient. Intelligent and useful for our needs, yes. But truly sentient, no. For something to become evil, it must be sentient. Anything else, if it ever becomes problematic, it would just be software bugs, not evilness.

Just imagine IF AI used in wrong places or wrong people( terrorists, North korea). It can be very dangerous, because AI bots are just programs. And these people just have to change the final Goal.

Its like you use knife to cut vegetables OR kill someone. It just depend on the person who has knife.
