I recently began receiving Time again. The last issue had a very interesting article on just what you mention. The effort to create the true AI, artificial intelligence. They had a graph showing some of the who's who in the genius world and how they lined up regarding the good, the bad, the wonderful and the cautious. Hawking landed on the let's be careful here side. Bill Gates, as I would expect, settled right in the middle, and those wacky Google guys were all for letting smart machines run rampant around the landscape.

All I can think of is all of them should read Asimov's I, Robot SciFi series.
