“Godfather of AI” Geoffrey Hinton Warns of the “Existential Threat” of AI | Amanpour and Company – YouTube

That’s a very different threat from many other threats, which also severe.
So they include these things like robots taking away jobs.
In a decent society, that would be great.
It would mean everything got more productive and everyone was better off.
But the danger is that it’ll make the rich richer and the poor poorer.
That’s not AI’s fault.
That’s how we organize society.

Following up on comment and links from Dan Kelleher. I listened to this video. Quite a different take from Professor Bender’s. A different set of warnings and problems. The quote above is not just about the dangers that Geoffrey Hinton discusses, but I think is applicable to many technology problems, In a decent society, that would be great.

Another really interesting episode from Jeremy Cherfas. I’d never heard of the British Restaurants that were more common in the midst of WW2 than MacDonalds are now. Where they came from, what happened in different places and the possibility of a return were all covered.
