AI Doom

Some people think AI is the best thing since sliced bread and mankind is about to make a giant leap.  Some people think the end of the world is nigh.  And some people think that AI is just a powerful autocomplete.

I'm more on the side that AI is a powerful autocomplete.  I don't think we understand sentience and I don't think the current AI will lead to it.  You train AI like you train a dog.  When you give a positive response, the AI will do more things like it just did.

I do think that it could be dangerous, but not because AI would take over the world.  The danger is that people could think AI is all-knowing and blindly follow what it says.
