Several leading experts have offered warnings about artificial intelligence becoming too powerful and autonomous for humankind. Technology is advancing at an unprecedented pace, leaving little room for thoughtful contemplation about the consequences of our inventions. In the Jetson’s world, two types of AI forms existed: a fully autonomous yet fully submissive robot named Rosie and a kind, yet fully independent machine named R.U.D.I.
