Which was that AI would decide in the future where money should be
allotted.  That brings to mind startup funders and the like.

How in the world would you ever program an AI to decide which project will
turn out to be the next iPhone or Hula Hoop?  Maybe it will come.  But we
all know many cases in many areas, such a book publishing, where a great
book had to go through a dozen publishers to find one that will print it.
A Confederacy of Dunces comes to mind.  The author committed suicide before
his mother finally sold his manuscript, which was a #1 seller.  (nowadays
it probably would have been on Amazon as an ebook, and word would spread
and the same outcome would occur without the death).

Can you imagine showing up to present your case to the AI, which can read
faces, emotions, lying, etc.?
