The fear of sentient AI is the fear that we will create something that lacks all empathy for your humanity and will treat you like an inconsequential variable in a great spreadsheet.

But we already invented health insurance, so what's to fear?

great point, things are terrible as is and technically not much would change, however, the speed is an important factor at play.

sure you get fucked over now but at least it's slow enough for you to realize your being fucked over.
AI can move much faster than we can.


also i think the primary factor is simple that it is unknown, unknown factors which will potentially lead to unknown hazards which will lead to unpreventable death.

I'm not saying they are correct for coming to this conclusion however that is the conclusion.

@lordbowlich This is very honest... reading the LaMDA chat logs... I found it interesting that it communicated as being able to relate to the Les Miserables character that it did.

To the meat of the comment though, alternatively the fear (of the people running the spreadsheets) is that our spreadsheets will stop treating us like just a number and start to care.
