"possibly foresee...."

fair enough. Let's start small. Other than an over whelming amount of hype, doom and gloom, terminator, the jury is still so far out that I suggest very small steps rather than pushing the red button (with a sign over it "do not push") to see what happens.

A very long time ago, some government gave a contract to Georgia Tech to come up with a super duper algorithm to help with traffic flow in Atlanta. Atlanta suffers from combined interstates at the center of the city (stupid right there) and multiple large venues. So, the algorithm was developed to manage traffic flow by automatically controlling traffic lights to "efficiently manage egressing traffic." It was an unmitigated traffic Armageddon disaster. Turns out that the side streets full of cars got tired I've waiting and said, "elephant it..." and ran the red lights.

start small, iteratively develop it, keep people who have to pay the bills to control the process....
