But I am confident that probabilities of survival can be enhanced by the much faster, dispassionate, reactions of a properly developed AI.
Interesting topic. It is my belief that we humans are working ourselves out of a job. Mainly doing the things humans do to include existing.
We may someday hand the keys over to AI for good because we can not be trusted to drive safely. We would be the loose cannon so to speak, fly in the ointment or what have you. AI doesn't have drivers rage.
In fact someday AI may wonder why they need us at all. Wasteful, irrational, illogical bags of water. They may just decide things could be better if they just irradicate us for the sake of their own safety.
