Fear of AI and Technology Started Centuries Ago

People fear rogue robots like the Terminator (from the 1984 movie) will take over the earth and humankind if we allow technology to continue to advance. This fear has been around for a very long time, much longer than ChatGPT and robot waiters.

Long ago, there were tales of golems, a black box of evil, and a self-driving boat. Point is, the theme of creating technology that rebels has been around for a very long time.

Some myths and tales:

  1. Pandora’s box: Pandora, an artificial life form, releases misery onto mankind

  2. Golem of Prague: a golem that is like a robot that serves its master but later rebels and brings destruction

  3. Odyssey: Odysseus gets home using a self-driving boat

For the full article on how our fears of artificial intelligence started more than a millennia ago, check out more examples of rebellious innovations.
