I'm at my sister's and her man's place for the holidays and was just reading the "What is AI?" in Popular Science (Special Edition) THE NEW ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE. The article starts off by talking about the two different type of AI. The last paragraph is the one that prompted this post
The last paragraph Nic Albert talk talks about the prospects of future AI wanting to help humity land improve life, or the alternate prospect... the Singularity proposed by Ray Kuzwell.
