Comparing dystopian predictions about A.I.

I had a thought yesterday about dystopian predictions for how Artificial Intelligence might bring about the end of the world as we know it. The thought was a sort of corrective to the cultural misinformation about A.I. generally promoted by Science Fiction movies and TV shows.

But it wasn’t really a very comforting corrective. My thought went something like this:

If A.I. ends up wiping out humanity, it won’t be because Sarah Connor was defeated by Skynet. It will be because Mickey Mouse was defeated by the brooms.
