I'm still in the "tech is good" camp. I'm not a believer of the whole "AI will become self aware and go rogue" so much as AI will be an increasingly powerful extension of ourselves. It's already happening with smartphones and computers.People had these sorts of debates back in the Industrial revolution. Back then Luddite was an actual insult to lob at someone who was afraid of technology's gradual encroach on people's lives.
I don't think it's a really relevant discussion to have right now, since technology is a reason why most of us are alive today. I think it's a better discussion to be had once things like artificial intelligence come about. Then we can have discussions about if computers can replace people.
