Bill, I believe the connotation for "pose" might be a bit strong than the dictionary definition. It might have been less irksome to some readers had you used "might pose" rather than "will pose."

Tim, I believe the popular images of AI gone wild doesn't seem to be part of the "clerisy" discussion. In the latter, the views seem to mostly fall, from my experience, into either the "it's impossible, so no worries" or the "it's possible, but AI will be friendly and attentive servants" camps. Maybe my experience is not wide enough. I haven't done surveys. But it's the general feeling I get about AI among the more thoughtful folks.


 My latest Kindle book, "Born With Teeth," is now available at: 
 (It's set in Seattle, if that's any help.:)
