We've so far looked at what AI can do. We've looked at what it gets right and wrong. We've also shown how future AI could make our lives easier. In this final part we'll look at whether its potential is damaging to our future or not. In the example...

Disclaimer: What you're about to read is a made-up scenario. While I use Apple as the protagonist, I have no clue if Apple is working on this or has even thought about this. I chose Apple as it has the technical know-how and the desire to put users b...
