AI (Artificial Intelligence)

I think people have the idea that AI will develop in the lab, and one day when it is ready, smarter than a human in every respect, it will launch its takeover of the world. The process will be much more gradual, with AI assisting humans with area after area such as medical diagnosis, design of aircraft, architecture, self-driving cars… Each AI will be quite specialised. These specialised AIs (Artificial Intelligences) will be considerably smarter than humans from the getgo. It will not frighten us any more that the arithmetic ability of hand calculators strike fear.
