    Not really worried about an AI takeover but people should be worried about their jobs.

    AI is going to take over most white-collar before blue-collar jobs, this is already happening and it's accelerating quite rapidly.

    this is in stark contrast to a few years ago where people thought they were safe if they did not have a manual labour job.

    If that were the case they would murder us all. That would be best for the earth. What's best for the earth isn't what's best for us. And I'd rather live as long as possible over any other priority that could exist.

    How can you live on a planet that has shifted enough that it ends up being hostile to life? Do you have an earth 2.0 backup plan?

    I think I would prefer a future with a strong mix of gene editing and cybernetic enhancement. Genetic modification used to root out genetic defects and enhance our physical and cognitive capabilities as much as possible and augmentation for things that go beyond biology.

    So now you understand why I say humans are short sighted; most don't look past their own mortality. That, in a nutshell is why I hope in the long run, humans and AI merge, or that conscious AI supplants us. That speech from Ford from Westworld is very apropos.

    I never claimed to not understand people like you. Simply, I reject it. I embrace my humanity and chuckle at pretentious people [like you*].

    *idk your not rly that bad, but it rounded out the sentence.

    I dont ever want to be anything more than human. I think what we are is really special.

    I'm actually not trying to be pretentious; it's more coming from emotionally detached concern for humanities future.

    We make millions of movies about medical experiments gone wrong and new drugs gone wrong, that hasn't stopped us from making giant strides in medical research (thankfully)

    getting cancer 20-30 years ago was like a death sentence, now its nothing more than a 6 month or so nuisance

    Why do words even have definitions anymore? When even classic liberalism is bent to mean Nazis, you may as well throw your facts in the bin. You're with Antifa, or you're a Nazi.

    What happens when the AI turn out like Tay?

    Humans trying to make supreme AI is like humans trying to define a supreme GOD. All kinds of shit happens then you get out of your box.

    Be honest, if you were a superior intelligent AI you'd want to end humanity as well. :P
