I don't know why people would have inherent fear of AI, at least at first.
1) make sure a human controls the power cord and switch so you can just .... turn ... it ... off... sheesh.
2) don't give it autonomous mobility
3) don't give it it's own factory to replicate itself
4) most importantly, don't give it control of the nukes
Take care of those 4 points and you'll be just fine. k?
A non-technical and non-sci-fi aspect of truly artificial intelligence is the whole secondary issue of AI Rights.
If a mind-in-a-box is created and exhibits 'feelings' and 'free will' who is to stop the bleeding hearts from demanding the AI be given rights that
forbid it from being turned off or fundamentally altered in some way?
Then if it has rights as a 'person' then why not demand it be given a body? What about a job? What about the ability to reproduce?
After all, ought not a life with intelligence and free will of a human be given basic human rights?
Could it be that destruction of the human race due to AI is caused by the bleeding heart crowd ensuring the AI has the capability to do so in the
