An utterly brilliant and thoroughly illuminating discussion of "artificial intelligence," including myths about AI and some of its actual dangers:

http://thebulletin.org/artificial-intelligence-really-existential-threat-humanity8577
Superintelligence: Paths, Dangers, Strategies is an astonishing book with an alarming thesis: Intelligent machines are “quite possibly the most important and most daunting challenge humanity has ever faced.” In it, Oxford University philosopher Nick Bostrom, who has built his reputation on the study of “existential risk,” argues forcefully that artificial intelligence might be the most apocalyptic technology of all.

The lessons for Greece are clear: Unless accompanied by substantial institutional reforms, neither austerity nor Grexit will work. However, in a democracy, fundamental institutional change cannot be imposed from outside—it requires strong political will and public support. Despite the deep Greek crisis, the country still seems to lack both.
