What do you think about artificial intelligence systems that can outperform humans?
They are revolutionary tools for solving problems facing humanity.
They won't change the world, but they have many practical, beneficial applications.
There's a danger that humans will lose control of AI and there will be grave consequences.
Some of their so-called big accomplishments, such as beating humans at games, are trivial and overhyped.
AI is one more reason to consider living completely off the grid.
