RT @Aaroth: Lots has been said about this article already: https://t.co/qOwLGcup90 and I think its core concern (technical work on "AI ethics" being used as a screen to avoid regulation) is legitimate. But it deeply mis-understands the role of Microsoft Research in particular. 1/

RT @NoelSharkey: Great to see a leading AI experts cut out the regurgitated hype of AI. Most of what we're calling AI is really large computational capabilities combined with a lot of data, to unpick statistical correlations," @lawrennd Quotes from Bengio and @j2bryson https://t.co/nJgAB1wxvn

There are genuine risks associated with AI - but the Terminator scenario isn't one of them.
