When people generally think of AI they think in futuristic terms defined by movies like The Terminator. However AI, at least at this moment, is nowhere near Skynet, a fictional artificial neural network-based conscious group mind and artificial general superintelligence system that serves as the antagonist of The Terminator franchise. Instead of worrying about Skynet, maybe we should worry about this bear wielding nunchucks, which seems like more of an immediate problem.
This tweet of course is a funny, but apt, metaphor on the immediate challenges we face with AI that need to be addressed now as opposed to the future.
