When I look at AI, I use my experience of automation. If I look at automation as a whole, on the negative side I see people loosing their jobs or being turned into burger flippers.

E.g. (burger flippers)
We have cashiers in our country where the tasks of being the cashier has been automated... They still work behind the cash desk, the customers insert the money into the machine and they automatically get back there money from the machine... all she now does is ring up all the items which she was doing in any case. She now gets less value out of her job that she was already getting.

E.g. (job losses)
The car industry, mining sector... no more required to say on these apart from that there is no way of getting a job for all of those who loosed jobs.

On the positive side (and this is how I view automation):
It frees up you time to focus on the real issues or the things that there were no time to look at previously and prevents you from having to do the tedious tasks. It makes it possible to do finish something quicker, less error prone, more cost affective (for someone else).

Now, if I have to weigh the positive against the negative... I have to say that before I can choose the positive I have to consider the negative because this are people's livelihood we are talking about. If you want to go that route, make sure that those who loose there jobs can start working in something else... e.g. research? But the reality of it is that, that will never happen as the main drive behind any idea is making $$$ and not making peoples lives better.
