Thanks Peter. I know what you mean and I don’t have any clue about what will happen in the next few decades — no one has. I think that AI taking over is a bit sci-fi scenario and that the research for such an intelligence is unrealistic and likely useless (check out the interview to Peter Norvig where he says “We know how to build real intelligence — my wife and I did it twice, although she did a lot more of the work”)

We tend to forget that technology should assist us not replacing us, and what it will happen will depend on us and on the effort on designing ethically and meaningfully the technology we are developing.
