Google has its fingers in just about everything these days, and the tech giant is making a hard push into artificial intelligence. So, what do the brains working on AI view as the biggest problems moving forward?
Artificial intelligence still has a way to go, but once it does catch up with the human mind, we do want to avoid a Skynet-level situation. Turns out telling our future robot overlords a story could be the best way to teach them about morality.
