So much for "Speak softly and carry a big stick"

One of the potential problems with AI is that people will forget how to think, and in some businesses, aren't allowed to think.
At least that is what my computer told me to write.

Another very real problem is the first Terminator movie (with Arnold Schwarzenegger) scenario. Elon Musk, among others, has expressed a similar concern.

Pertinent script from the original Terminator movie:

Sarah: Reese. Why me? Why does it (the terminator) want me?

Kyle Reese: There was a nuclear war. A few years from now, all this, this whole place, everything, it's gone. Just gone. There were survivors. Here, there. Nobody even knew who started it. It was the machines, Sarah.

Sarah: I don't understand.

Kyle Reese: Defense network computers. New... powerful... hooked into everything, trusted to run it all. They say it got smart, a new order of intelligence. Then it saw all people as a threat, not just the ones on the other side. Decided our fate in a microsecond: extermination.
