how? machinery is not a replacement for people, but an augmentation of
their powers, making machines responsible is abrogating our human duty
the idea of life-critical decisions being made by machines makes my
blood chill, and every instance of it seems to end up with nobody taking
the blame for bludners.

we need humans in the loop more than ever.
