Also, I think that if the incident had gone public by then, that wouldn’t have contributed positively to my professional research career.

However, now that we are living a historical moment in the development of Artificial Intelligence, where AI solutions are already part of the innovation program of almost any company, I think it is important that people know not only about the benefits, but also about the real risks of developing machines that make their own decisions. …
