That might be why he was so anti-AI.

Given being designed by humans, it can only end badly.

They probably already have and have realised there are so many virtual currencies adding another is a waste of its time.

Can Congress Bar Fully Autonomous Nuclear Command and Control?
Sens. Edward Markey, Elizabeth Warren, Jeff Merkley, and Bernie Sanders recently released a draft bill to safeguard nuclear command and control from future policy changes that might allow an artificial intelligence (AI) system to make nuclear launch decisions.

...

Applying this line of opinions to the Markey proposal, the executive branch very likely would conclude that the president has the constitutional authority to choose any actor he wants to perform specific military functions. Logically, perhaps this need not be a human actor; it could include an artificially intelligent machine.

AI, generally speaking, have lots of time.

The Southern Hemishere will only delay the results of a serious exchange, ostensibly between us and China.

I refer you to both film versions and the book "On The Beach".

It's completely unrealistic and also features a nuclear attack on Australia itself. Without a major nuclear stike in the SH, the lack of interaction between hemispheres means we'd probably be fine.

It's not a likely outcome anyway.

Another case of fiction previewing reality.
