Seen the movie Ex Machina? It raises, in a gentle way, big questions about the relationship of humans to the artificial intelligences we are trying to create. People such as Stephen Hawking, Bill Gates, and Elon Musk are warning that we are not thinking deeply enough about creating artificial intelligence agents and that our AI creations could, someday down the road, mean the end of the human race. Might be worth considering that possibility now while there is still time.
