A few nights ago I was fascinated to see a brief
interview with Bill Joy on CBS evening news. The
topic was "robotic artificial intelligence" and a
brief overview was given of some advances in this
area. Then Bill Joy was shown(I had never seen him
before) and he summed up his quick comments with "what
humanity can do, it will do, and so humanity will
destroy itself with these new technologies!" For such
a supposedly intelligent man I was taken aback by his
statement. By his own flawed logic we should have
already destroyed ourselves with nuclear weapons.
