Well, what I like to do is overhype the threat of AI to society while also refusing to change any facet of my life whatsoever, so I guess Gary Kasparov is an idiot

Sarcasm or misread?

    These are the same sensations that many are feeling today, as intelligent machines advance in field after field. Few people will experience the dramatic, head-to-head competition against a machine that I experienced, of course, but the sensation of being challenged, surpassed and possibly replaced by an automaton, or an invisible algorithm, is becoming a standard part of our society.

    Speaking from painful personal experience, I would suggest that this is the wrong frame of reference to approach the issue, and it is having a negative influence when we desperately need more optimism.

The former, and I apologize, my sarcasm is approaching toxic levels. It's temporary, semester's over in 15 days.

I loved the article, thank you for posting. :)
