Do you really think so? One of the best scenes of "Forrest Gump" was
when the conversion with the drill sergeant:
"What are you supposed to do here, Gump?"
"Obey your order, sir!"
"Gump, you are a genius!".
Creating something that mindlessly obeys orders isn't what I would call
AI. We already have these devices. The difference between a Kamikaze
pilot and a cruise missile control computer is that you don't need to
put shit in the brain of the latter before it does it's job - and that
it is less likely to miss the target.

A mindless microwave will happily kill you cat if you put it in and
switch on. You must add something (intelligence, sensors) to prevent
