Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a bipolar conversation in a world about to transform totally by 2030. AI Supporters and detractors are equally passionate and compelling. Already, IBM Watson data mining and machine learning technologies can demonstrate that a "Paralegal" may not be required or basic oncology testers providing medical diagnosis, that is not significantly worse than a human physician. India already faces massive social ills due to its demographic blip with approximately 300 million job seeking age persons and not enough jobs. Economies like Venezuela and other "one trick pony" countries, in the middle east face this threat too. So if the future means "jobless growth", there will be a surplus of 90% humans. Wars are inevitable unless the current manner of "managing" the world's resources with its few winners and mostly losers, changes completely into a collaborative and enlightened place; dont hold your breath! The over-indebted economies are unlikely to mend anytime soon; they're metaphorically "riding the tiger and cannot get off".
