Thanks for being here.

AI will automate processes that do not need human intervention.

This will allow for humans to focus on more creative endeavors.

There are many tasks that humans currently do that are very simple and take little to no critical thinking. 

These tasks can easily be completed by AI.

Eventually, more complex tasks will be taken up by AI. 

At some point, it's possible that humans will be able to focus solely on creative endeavors, leading to higher life satisfaction and exponential growth in many fields.

Apologies for forfeiture of round 1.

Okay. So no win.

Anyway, AI is obviously going to kill us.

It already kills our brain cells by giving us false info.

I dont see how it can get any more net negative than that.

AI only provides the information it is provided by humans. 

Any fault of AI is the fault of the humans that programmed it. 

In regards to AI killing humanity, humans are much more likely to complete that task than a collection of computer programs.

AI didn't create atomic bombs or cause genocide, humans did.
