I'm excited about the world of designed intelligence, but the

potential emergence of “Terminator”-type killer robots

scares me, too. Lethal autonomous weapons systems are currently being used and I have no doubt are being designed to have increasingly greater roles and be even more destructive. By all sides.

When I was a kid I probably read too many comics in which evil scientists needed a superhero to stop them from taking over the world. I've grown out of believing in superheroes, but have no doubt there could be scientists (a modern Edward Teller, perhaps) out there willing to do the dirty work of a real-life Lex Luther, who could be in the form of an individual, corporation or government.
