No matter which AI-driven near future dystopia floats your boat, remember that it will really be started by Man’s hubris and willful ignorance. If and when it happens, we shall have birthed our own demise through just being us.
Perhaps, however, this is a foregone conclusion. Certainly, any of the Abrahamics should consider that possibility and take such actions as seem proper to postpone and/or mitigate the likely outcome. It seems to me, if one accepts Yahweh as the Creator, to be far more probable that “made in His image” meant our selves, not our flesh, was made so, including the desire to Create. And, of course, we forget that we are flawed and our creations made in our image will be even more so.
It is and I think shall be a worthy test of the pithy truism, “Knowledge is knowing that Frankenstein is not the monster. Wisdom is knowing that Frankenstein is the monster.”
