There are also fears about how artificial or machine intelligence interact with the external world.
Such computer-driven "intelligence" might be a powerful tool in industry, medicine, agriculture or managing the economy.
But it also can be completely indifferent to any incidental damage
ReaderRant may in fact be an unwitting case study. Some of us remember when Earl Weaver managed the Orioles, Bill Clinton as POTUS, and RR was a vibrant, active, and engaging place to commune with others of unlike mind in mostly civilized way.
Then came the posters who are artificially intelligent, who destroyed discourse of any kind through polemics, indefensible argument, outright prevarication, etc. Over years of such activity, with a revolving door of the disruptive, it just isn't what it used to be.
Well, at least now we know why!
