EU lawmakers seek coordinated hand-wringing over AI ethics


The thing I don't get...

....about AI, is why society is so obsessed with Artificial Intelligence when that same society doesn't exactly value human intelligence very highly.

For example; Is Paris Hilton famous for her brains, or her video leaks? Can anyone explain how Jade Goody became a famous millionaire?

What do we want this new intelligence for? And if we don't treat it considerably better than the jocks treat the nerds at school, why should it give us a moments pause?
