Humans, Not Robots, Are The Real Reason Artificial Intelligence Is Scary

Well, we kind of know that humans like killing and will make a weapon out of anything. What is really scary is how an engineer and a professor don’t think robots are, in fact, going to kill us all.

Imagine a GoPro-bearing quadcopter drone, the kind of thing anyone can buy. Now imagine a simple piece of software that allows it to fly automatically. The same nefarious crime syndicate that can weaponize a driverless car is just inches away from attaching a gun and programming it to kill people in a crowded public place.
