Look, people! You really need to get it together on this already.
Artificial Intelligence has arrived. The human race is doomed. You might as well get used to it. Don’t take it out on the innocent self-driving cars you are starting to see on the local street corner.
They didn’t do anything to you. They can’t feel anything. In fact, they don’t realize you exist. They don’t even know they exist!
If you have an issue with AI and self-driving vehicles, it’s not with the machines themselves. It’s with the people who are creating them. Yet, even that’s not good enough. Those people in the tech world are just doing their jobs, too. They are bringing people what they want.
People don’t want to drive their own cars. They don’t want the job they hate. I, for one, can’t wait until I show up to work one of these days and the boss is no longer there, but I’m greeted by an AI powered drone that politely tells me my services are no longer needed.
Of course, that will be awhile. The computer software I use at work currently is as dumb as a box of rocks (I work for a non-profit, which should tell you all you need to know).
So, while we’re waiting for the robots to rise up, check out this article about the new bullies, then let me know in the comments what you think about harassing self-driving cars. Should we be allowed to flip them off, yell at them, throw rocks at them – and even pull guns on them (click the image below for the article)?
