I was going to leave it at a snide remark, but since you persist in confidently spouting off about a topic on which you are completely ignorant, I feel compelled to reply.

tl;dr: No, there is nothing about this configuration error which suggests that current and prospective AI techniques and applications are inherently dangerous.

This bug was a result of a typo in a configuration file. In commercial and scientific applications of AI, configuration files are typically used to configure the project's build system, or to configure a distributed system processing job for training your AI agent. In both cases, a configuration file error will lead to the tasks failing: either your system doesn't build, or your training job doesn't end in usable output. Even if we assumed for the sake of argument that such an error doesn't lead to immediate failure, there is simply no risk of the AI becoming SkyNet because that is not within the domain of what build systems and batch job systems do.

Let's now suppose that the error was in the source code of your AI system. For our purposes we can divide programming languages -- which are the tools that express a computation for a computer to run -- into two categories: compiled and interpreted. If source code for a compiled language had the aforementioned error, it would fail to compile and never reach a runnable/executable unless the error is found and fixed first. Fortunately that would be very easy to do, because a modern compiler will give you the line and character number at which the error occurred, and very likely will even prompt a known identifier that is a short edit distance away, e.g. "did you mean Anchor instead of Ancher?" In an interpreted language, the program would run until it reaches the line with the type, at which time the unknown identifier will trigger a runtime exception, bringing everything to a screeching halt, terminating the program with a failure.

Finally, if we assume for the sake of argument that the typo was in the training or evaluation data for our AI agent, we again have nothing to worry about. One erroneous data point will not significantly alter the weights of the model that the AI agent uses for its "intelligence". Even if it did, the outputs of the model are still programmer defined and controlled: the programmer defines the range or categories of output and then lets the AI produce the output within those categories/ranges. You define the potential output values, even if you don't know which value the AI will pick; unless you define a value of "KILL_ALL_HUMANS", the AI is never going to spontaneously produce such a value. Finally, a significant component of data science and AI engineering is cleaning heterogenous data and preprocessing your data so as to produce useful inputs (feature engineering). Even though we've already established that an erroneous data point is meaningless for the success of the model, it is entirely possible that your data cleaning and feature engineering efforts will correct for a typo so that the data point still ends up being useful for you AI's model.

In short, Cutter, you are an ignorant, overweight, middle-aged bartender who is completely out of his depth and could stand to show some fucking intellectual humility for once.

You had me at bartender.

The inconvenient truth about cancer and mobile phones
But it ain't ionizing radiation my ass.
When Lai recategorised the studies according to their funding sources, a different picture emerged: 67% of the independently funded studies found a biological effect, while a mere 28% of the industry-funded studies did.

Industry funded studies found less risk?

Here is my shocked face.

'Industry Funded Studies' shouldn't be a 'thing' at all. Ever. I don't care how an All-American-apple-pie-in-a-Ford-truck-pulling-a-Studebaker full of good intentions kind of company you are. Hell, I'd go as far as to say the entire U.S. health care system should be NON-PROFIT!

Somewhat off-topic - I've always wondered how different this country would be if it's health care system had always been non-profit and it's educational system was for-profit and commercialized? Basically a role reversal. Would we be better off if being a high school teacher commanded six figure salaries instead of surgeons?

=-Rigs-=
The article is referencing a study in 2011. http://www.seattlemag.com/article/uw-scientist-henry-lai-makes-waves-cell-phone-industry
The scariest thing mentioned was the following;
Lai, 61, says this phenomenon could be a direct result of the way science is now funded around the world. “[The U.S. was on] the cutting edge of this whole area for the last 30 years. [But] right now, we’re the Third World country. We’re not doing research at all,” Lai says. With government funding all but nonexistent, the bulk of scientific research is funded by private industry. “The mechanism is funding,” Lai says. “You don’t bite the hand that feeds you. The pressure is very impressive.”&#8203;
