This is the hottest field in Computer Science today – making Computers smarter (sometimes referred to as Artificial Intelligence). The logic here is simple – smart computers will make smart companies richer.
This, in itself, is not a bad thing – but it sure attracts bad people.
The analogy here is obvious – making bronze swords was innocent enough – but the people who used them were not. They did not hesitate to stick other people in the guts.
In the same way, unscrupulous businessmen do not hesitate to take advantage of other people – in any way they can.
And they can be very clever at this. And very good at getting the Government to protect them – all they have to do is buy them up.
