    Putin can’t be that dumb. That had to be taken out of context. Ever heard of fake news.

    When Science Fiction become science fact things can become interesting. AI has been the subject of Science Fiction for a very long time and in 1942 a Russian born American writer came up with a solution in the programing of all robots called the three laws of robotics, Asimov’s Laws.

    1 A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
    2 A robot must obey the orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
    3 A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Laws

    Putin is right to be concerned because as we move into the world of AI there are lots of problems we will face and in fact we could be sewing the seeds of our own destruction if we aren’t careful. Be sure to read the article since the headline is misleading.
