Machine Learning and AI

I have been following machine learning and AI developments over the past few years and it seems to be a conundrum. There is potential for this technology to be an impressive utility but also prone to abuse beyond imagination or comprehension. Here are some examples. 🧵

In December 2014, Stephen Hawking warned that full AI could end mankind https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-30290540.
