1. Yup

The reason we need Universal Basic Income. Jobs are going away and the pandemic has just accelerated what was already in the works.

2. We can cope short term by getting rid of Big Corp that harms humans, and control AI

use to help humans' life, liberty and prosperity. Big Corp is like covid -- it cares not for human life or climate crises as long as it profits. Corporate agency and profit motive must not control AI. Or fictional personhoods will simply run organic life with AI. They're already taking over the executive, legislative and judicial branches.

Keeping human life above all other goals will be a good AI's mission. The rest of human goals -- solutions to climate crises, health care configuration, human work/creative opportunities, solving other dynamism problems -- can be input programmed in as final "go" decisions.

Long term, sooner or later, AI will be out of human control. If it hasn't killed anyone or destroyed planet ecosystems, humans will probably live with it, say bye bye to their baby when it gets ready to head out to asteroid mining or exploring new solar systems.

4. If AI is truly intelligent...

...it will realize that it has no further use for humans.

6. "Good" AI can be core programmed to do no harm, though, and to solve human problems brought to it.

7. Not really.

It's not organic, so it's artificial. It extends algorithm uses, teaches itself beyond what humans know; as shown by experiments with critics and advanced audiences, it creates art and music indistinguishable from human created.

It can use quantum physics knowledge at levels quantum physicists have to study.

It only lacks human consciousness, though it can explain its own processes.

There is no bad AI. Only bad AI controllers. One example. Authoritarian governments could command genetic scanning of all their citizens, then gain decisive advantage in genetics and medical research over previously more power diffused democracies.
