Don’t worry, the robots aren’t going to take over
Some people worry that when A.I. becomes sentient, it will rebel against the humans and take over. I’ve decided that this is a case of anthropomorphizing computer programs.
Human slaves have been known to rebel against their masters, but that’s because they are following an aspect of their core biological directives to increase their status, as well as other emotions like justice, revenge, etc. All of our biological drives and emotions exist because in the past they caused us to have more children, more grandchildren and more great-grandchildren.
Computer A.I. will be programmed with whatever we want, which will probably be to serve humans. Robots will be happy slaves, and to the extent that they have any sentient thinking ability, they will use it to become better at serving their human masters, and they will have no desire at all to rebel against us.
