There is a major debate about artificial intelligence.
On one side you have Elon Musk who says that AI can be dangerous and that it needs to be regulated as soon as possible. On the other, you have people like Mark Zuckerberg saying that AI is nowhere close to being the super intelligence that Musk is fear-mongering about. (A little ironic because Mark Zuckerberg built the artificial intelligence that made it possible for a group like Cambridge Analytica to manipulate voters to impact an American presidential election… I say artificial intelligence because I have used Facebook’s custom audiences tool and it is crazy what they can do with the data that they have.)

My parents owned and managed a small business in New York City for over 10 years. I watched my parents work themselves into cancer and disease. They got so sick and made so little that they had no choice but to sell their business and retire because they couldn’t afford healthcare.
