“As we increasingly interact with intelligent machines, will they be responsible to make up for our failures?”

"What if this is a metaphor for our autonomy in general? We humans like to talk about human ingenuity as our own greatest hope. We’re confident that if we work together we can solve society’s worst problems. We’ll even pretend that we can deliver the planet. But we’d also like to keep the argument in our back pocket that when things go badly wrong God should have done something. If it turns out well, we’ll take the credit; if something goes wrong, it’s His fault." - Joel Arnold
