If AI understands natural processes of ecology along with sustainability, then I will welcome our new overlords.

Hi all,

I tend to be a bit apprehensive about AI taking over, as they would probably be very logical. Good on some fronts but our personal freedoms will end up taking a backseat. Ie: No more unhealthy habits or unhealthy food or dangerous activities/pastimes.. etc. Being treated like children would take much of the joy out of living the way we want. Enforcement would naturally become somewhat Draconian and heavy handed.

Best wishes,
Dave :^)

I agree, Dave. It took me a long time to start talking to those silly telephone robots. Now, if they want to come in and clean my apartment, I might consider that.
