We should not fear AI and automation

AI means different things to different people. In the west many people first really thought about AI through watching films like ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ or ‘I, Robot’, or the ‘Terminator’ movies. In those movies, the AI are seen as the bad guys. Movies like Steven Spielberg’s ‘A.I. Artificial Intelligence’ showed us AI could suffer if they become consumer items and are thrown away. Japan’s media and view of AI has always been more positive, showing AI helping humanity achieve a better future.
