AI is one of those innovations like nuclear fusion that are always just around the corner. It's actually a very challenging thing, and a lot of what people call "AI" isn't AI.
A person has genes that have been around for millenia and some even millions of years, yet we can use computer and smart phones and things that were not around.
If you build a computer program that builds random forest decision trees it's not going to suddenly figure out how to do Bayesian classification algorithms or really anything else. These programs are basically like children doing long division but having no idea how it actually works. They blindly follow the set of instructions that is the software even if some context emerges where they make no sense or don't work. I don't see how you work around that, at least easily.
Being able to process large amounts of data very quickly is super useful, but it isn't thinking.
More than some Matrix scenario, I'm much more worried about people letting computers do their thinking for them instead of just doing calculations for them. Even a lot of scientists out there think you can get an answer from SPSS analysis and it's ironclad.
Pwns... I can appreciate the whole divinity of man thing... it dies hard
But we are just a collection of a couple billion yes-no circuits
A human brain will eventually be simulated mechanically/electroncially (if we dont wipe ourselves out first)
We already can code basic learning and adaptations into these things- it is only a matter of time until we will have machines with judgment and emotion and the minute it gets into the “internet of things” we will be fvcked sideways

Are you using the word judgement in place of decision making?
The facet of AI that, IMO,should concern you all is the machine learning. The ML will do things it hasn't been programmed to do. Not everything that's AI will/can/should have this capability.
For instance, an AI can adapt to different situations (you see this in autonomous driving). AI, essentially, does human tasks better. But ML will actually learn, evolve and then begin to make judgement calls based off its experience and what it knows/processes. ML doesn't need as much human intervention as opposed to AI.
An AI machine can't read song lyrics and tell you if it's happy, sad or what. A ML machine can.
CID - I didn't say all that b/c I think you don't know about it. I bet you do. I'm just adding to the convo.
