AI, or artificial intelligence, doesn't yet have the capacity to decide whether to be good or evil. It is, rather, whatever we program it to be, and unfortunately when humans are the programmers it can be prone to adopting our flaws and erroneous thinking. That's why AI bots that get released on social media turn racist within a matter of days, or why predictive crime models police minority neighborhoods more. But there are also some really great things that AI can do to help humanity, such as make our farming and shipping practices more efficient or help differently-abled people overcome their disabilities.
