Like it or not, artificial intelligence already plays a considerable role in your life. Maybe Facebook’s algorithm pointed you toward this article. Maybe you just switched off a Netflix movie that magically popped up in your recommendations. Maybe you’re hiding under your bed hoping that hyper-intelligent machines won’t find you. OK, that last one is an exaggeration, but maybe not by as much as you’d think. In fact, a recent Pew research survey found that more than 70 percent of people are worried about a future in “in which machines do many jobs currently done by humans.” If you’re one of those people, last week’s Google-dominated, AI-heavy tech news cycle definitely didn’t help.
