    Hello! In my humble opinion the media is basis when it comes to reporting AI advancements its always in the negative and never in the positive.I can’t go along anymore with that story that AI  and robots are going to either enslave or exterminate humanity that would be going in the wrong direction away from a paradism centered future.Where technology frees humanity from the need for work and money let’s embrace AI and robots free the human race!

    Yeah, mass media especially because that’s what the masses watch. YouTube adds wider perspective, even though the masses still fall for click-baity headlines and controversy.

    IMO, the fear of “AI taking over humanity” has been a lame science fictional story, unfortunately obscuring how AI might indeed eventually take over, with a mind of its own. At first, like maybe in its first few years, the agency of AI, e.g. its designers, owners, employers, and implementers will choose how they want their AI to behave.

    Now take for example China’s CCP, using AI to control their people, while keeping it out of their people’s hands. IMO China and other authoritarian countries will be the agents with AI to watch for how far nefarious behavior can go.

    There will be self-interested, good and bad actors controlling their implementation of AI. And there will inevitably be implementers who give their AI, whether accidentally or intentionally, power of determining their own programming and independent goal setting and self-determination. It cannot be just one kind of AI that takes over all AI, but an eventual cooperation of different AIs that the owners, designers, and implementers decide to merge together, with or without capabilities of AI self-determination.

    My point here is not that all of the AI mergings and self-determination abilities will be bad, but that any takeover will start out as some benign and some good, some selfish and bad, and like any powerful tool built by science and tech, what kind of guarantee by anyone can be made wrt how AI evolves? Humans, fallible, good, and evil, are kicking it off.
