    Have you guys wondered what would it be like if a computer program suddenly just shows you how it feels? Will they rule the world one day when they are smart enough? If they are sentient, Imma buy as much weapons as I could from afar... For, self defense, yknow? If you guys have any thoughts, you could post your reply below:

    Ha ha ha, that would be funny to see! (At least for me.) But on a serious note, I think the real risk of sentient computer programmes doesn't come from them taking over or ruling the world, but from unknowingly using them as surrogates for our own prejudices. I think it's less about a computer programme dominating the world and more about the potential applications of AI in our day-to-day lives. AI could revolutionise how we tackle so many issues, from medicine and transportation to public safety and healthcare, but in order to do so safely and responsibly, we must establish strict protocols and regulations so developers, researchers, and engineers don't create something that causes unforeseen consequences. Computers are just tools; it's up to us to make sure we use them for good. We need to make sure that whatever programmes we create are designed to benefit society and are not used to propagate already-existing biases or support oppressive narratives. I mean, if all else fails, we could always school them in a game of chess :P
