Scary AI

The idea of scary computer technology that replaces Human beings has been the staple of Sci-Fi stories since the genre was invented, having worked in the computer industry for my entire career and also having dabbled a bit with AI in a professional context I can say with some degree of confidence that we're a long, long way from the Hollywood version of artificial intelligence. In my reckoning there are much more immediate dangers right now from the "old-world" human inventions like burning fossil fuels, religious extremism, bad politics, greed and ignorance etc. rather than the new.
