Nonsense: the alarmists have been saying this stuff for years

and such predictions of future AI capabilities have always been way off. In a hundred years from now the alarmist will still be saying this stuff. AI is not going to take us over.

Computers are electronic machines that operate as designed. They are not going to become conscious by accident, or ever. Without consciousness, the computers will have no capability to give a shit about anything, so they are not going to take over the world.

Consciousness evolved through millions of years of evolution to allow nature to create complex animated critters. Without the positive and negative feelings we experience, such as emotions and pain, the computer will have no way to create fully independent thought. It will still be a machine, because, only through feelings do we think, do, learn, remember, choose, and care.

We have no clue how we are conscious, and probably never will, so we are not in any way going to make computers conscious by accident.
