Well there's the minutia of just how intelligent certain AIs will be. Firstly I'd believe that there would have to be some sort of absolute control to shackle said AI in the event it does go rogue. However something being an AI doesn't necessarily mean it's going to be some ultimate intelligence either. How smart does an AI have to be to do a job most humans can do? Not very in most cases. And even in cases where it needs to be smarter than your average bear, say medicine, again that doesn't mean Skynet level of intelligence.

I dunno. I think we need it overall. And it seems inevitable at this point. It's all in how its implemented and handled at all levels of society. If it's too sudden or overwhelming then it'll be bad, very bad. It's more of a walk before you run scenario. And while Ray is a smart man we also see how quick and easy it is for a company like Google to go from 'Don't be evil' to 'We're totes fuckin' evil now!' in a hop, skip, and a jump. Any AI programming would have to have some sort of official oversight, and even then, who watches the watchers? What about hardcore villains and rogue states programming AIs for their own nefarious purposes, or our own governments even?

Yeah, there's major potential upsides and downsides to the whole thing. Guess it's like anything else, we'll only have the benefit of hindsight after they're here and how it all plays out.

You've got to be cruel to be kind...in the right measure.
