Poll: The Meanest Digital Artificial Intelligence

Since science fiction movies began to show fantasies about artificial intelligence in general, many have been critical of it.

What if an artificial "brain" develops too fast or has a corrupted file that acts like a sleeper - with delay! What if your smart robot turns to murder? What if a complete networked structure turns against you?

There have been many ideas about bad artificial intelligences. Please remember the persons in the movies, affected by these artificial intelligences in their specific situations.

Which of these AIs seems to be the meanest nightmare?

    No, there will never be the ability to really feel things for AIs, so AIs will never be able doing more than the tricks we learn them. They do not have the fear of a god looking down on them, neither will be able to do morally decisions like humans, based on the feelings in our guts, experiences, empathy and morals in our education. They just calculate the "right" decision without any hormone spent. So AIs are just made in the need of humans to play god and create a "thinking toy".

    (Betty White option for AIs)
