Henry Kissinger lays out the dangers of AI, not as an apocalyptic vision, but as a all to pay attention and start confronting necessary questions about the relationship between humans and our technological offspring.

My take: This is the first opinion piece about the dangers of AI that made me genuinely nervous. It may be that the issues we think are most important in this moment will pale before this one.

"The Enlightenment started with essentially philosophical insights spread by a new technology. Our period is moving in the opposite direction. It has generated a potentially dominating technology in search of a guiding philosophy. Other countries have made AI a major national project. The United States has not yet, as a nation, systematically explored its full scope, studied its implications, or begun the process of ultimate learning. This should be given a high national priority, above all, from the point of view of relating AI to humanistic traditions."
