[PDF] Stanford study on artificial intelligence

The report is named "artificial intelligence and life in 2030", and of course, since these areas grow exponentially, predictions are hard to make. Plus it is a long read. The Exec summary closes with:

"If society approaches these technologies primarily with fear and suspicion, missteps that slow AI’s development or drive it underground will result, impeding important work on ensuring the safety and reliability of AI technologies. On the other hand, if society approaches AI with a more open mind, the technologies emerging from the field could profoundly transform society for the better in the coming decades."

Let's be open minded, but careful... these are powerful technologies.
