the worst piece on the issue I have ever seen. Sensationalist and anti-science.
1 July 2019 | by random-70778See all my reviews

Wow. I am a longtime supporter of Nick Bostrum serious warnings on AI. it certainly is the most serious potential existential danger to humans that has yet arisen. But this film is is flackly and so forced on nonsense narratives that it is childish. he is taking Tesla driving accidents, sex robots, military robotics, and all technology and AI issues and cramming them into what they are not -- they are not one phenomena. It is like saying that "technology" when it comes to the wheel, fire, the first metallurgy, or agriculture itself were all the same -- and dangerous. That is not true.

Essentially this is a fake news exemplified: Create a nonspecific vague fear, conflate unrelated issues, cherry pick and bias filter exclude any data or rational argument.

And what on earth was the last vignette with the law enforcement officer? It was forced and at of nowhere and actually clashed with what the experts have stated. He seems to be saying that governments and their agents should exclusively have all the weapons ( this case civilian basic light firearms) and citizens shoudl have none. Pozdorovkin ought to reread his Bostrum. The problem with AI is SINGULARITY -- the monopoly of all power and force in government that is the likely/certain main manifestation of the most acute danger.
