Artificial Intelligence News: Slate Readers Not Convinced About AI Being A Threat, Think Humans Exploiting AI Are More Dangerous : News : Parent Herald. One quick look around the world today proves that artificial intelligence, technology, and computers are no threat to humanity. Evil human beings are the biggest threat. They always have been, and always will be. Technology and progress have created a world far kinder to more people than ever in history; and, naysayers who postulate that banning technology, and science and all things scientific will create some pollyannaish sylvan paradise are fools. While criminals and bad actors will use technological advances and AI for evil purposes, such tech is our best defense against the proliferation of evil. So, let's stop talking about how tech and robotics and AI and computers are being abused by evil people, and start talking about using tech and robotics and AI and computers to put the evil people away. Just something to think about on Mother's Day. We all need a tech mother these days.
