We consider how the recent fake new situations could lend truth to Elon's position.  In our society we see violent emotional reactions to news regularly.  What if AI decides the right course of action is to manipulate information to get rid of a specific group of people?  Hawking has a great quote about ant piles that speaks to this.  Of course, this episode would not be complete without robot movie quotes.  Directive four from Robocop!  Mark expresses concerns about dating AI robots in the workspace.  Kyle mentions how urine tests won't be good enough when hiring in the future.  AI will fix the damage fried foods are causing to our bodies.

Will regulation be the answer?  Listen to hear our position.  Thanks for tuning in.  Please subscribe and give us a five star rating if you found value in this.
