There is more uncertainty around advances in artificial intelligence (AI) and one of its major sub-sets, machine learning, than the current debate suggests, particularly with regard to the technology’s impact on society and the economy. No doubt the advances have indeed been incredible and advocates are right to highlight them. However, not everyone views this as an unalloyed good. In fact, there is great concern that AI poses a threat to jobs, privacy, and, eventually, even humanity.
