Artificial Intelligence

Not entirely sure what you mean by this, Michael, but the bolded part might equally be taken by some as opinionated propaganda. Convince me otherwise -- provide the evidence.
"but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat from it you will surely die." Genesis 2:17​
"When the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was desirable to make one wise, she took from its fruit and ate; and she gave also to her husband with her, and he ate." Genesis 3:6​
"Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned--" Romans 5:12​

From this condemning doctrine (you personally are to blame for the state of the Universe) has stemmed an unholy cascade of suffering and ignorance. The best way to enslave a person (you and me) and make them ignorant - is to assign to them an original guilt, due to their skin color or who they are.

Promulgating this teaching above is, short of murder, probably the most dastardly thing a person can do.
I have been playing with a flight simulator on my PC. The software says the flight controllers and the other planes are AI. I know it is just a computer program and I don't have any special hardware in my PC, but when I read science fiction stories, the AI's are like real people and often are somehow mysteriously becoming human (like Pinocchio) so when I run the program and turn off the AI planes to improve performance, or when I think about the air traffic controllers observing me I feel sort of creepy about it, like what if they were people with feelings? But I know it's just a computer program.

I guess my point is that designer's of AI systems that interact with people will need to consider how people feel about AI even if their feelings are not rational. They should be thoughtful about how they present their systems to the public.
