    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.

    "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.
