Are robots dangerous? Is Artificial Intelligence destined to take over the world?
The short answers: yes, and eventually. The robot apocalypse is inevitable. But there's no need to stress, because at least for now, machines are complete idiots.

Listen to this episode to find out just how intelligent AIs aren't.
