In reply to Baggins. AI is a tool just like everything else we use. Such as software, computer, flashlight, tape measure, sonic measure, digital camera, scope etc. They all can be used the right or wrong way. It is no different from using the internet for good or bad. AI has been around a long time just like the internet was before it became public and now AI is available for public use.
