Re: Stranger than fiction
The most vulnerable people for an AI attack might be people who are dependent on machines to live -- like patients with pacemakers or on dialysis? We had a VP who had no pulse due to his pacemaker and heart condition. Imagine if more and more powerful people are dependent on machines to live..? A cyberattack or AI attack could be worse than we might imagine now.

Re: Stranger than fiction
We haven't reached the Singularity -- but there's a good chance we might! And if/when it happens, we might not be prepared. Maybe there is no way to prepare for it? Or maybe, as some people like Elon Musk think, we might avoid a "bad Singularity" by creating a "Good Singularity" -- but we have to put some thought into what makes a good or bad Singularity first!

Re: Stranger than fiction
@Michelle: "Humans vs Machines" has been an obsession sci-fi fans have had for the longest time. Film-makers have been super fascinated by it as well. However, I don't think it is anything more than a fantasy for now. There's a long way to go before machines become truly powerful to be able to take over humans. Human beings are also evolving as machines do (thankfully) and I don't see any real combat in real life any time soon.

Stranger than fiction
Humans v Machines begins in 2019? I don't think James Cameron could have predicted the rise of the machines in this manner. Although, AI is a consistient theme in the Terminator movies.
