    What worries you about the coming world of artificial intelligence?Too often the answer to this question resembles the plot of a sci-fi thriller. People worry that developments in AI will bring about the “singularity” — that point in history when AI surpasses human intelligence, leading to an unimaginable revolution in human affairs. Or they wonder whether instead of our controlling artificial intelligence, it will control us, turning us, in effect, into cyborgs.

    "The Real Threat of Artificial Intelligence" is from the June 23, 2017 Opinion section of The New York Times. It was written by Kai-Fu Lee and narrated by Kristi Burns.

    If you have not heard any proposals for a “universal basic income” (UBI), you will soon. Under a UBI, the federal government would send each American (including children, in some plans) a monthly check of, say, $800 or $1,000 to cover basic needs. A couple would receive $20,000 per year, regardless of other income earned; a family with children would get more. The bloated welfare state? Poverty? Solved! And all of it supposedly paid for by eliminating safety net programs that would no longer be necessary.
