SyFy: Please come back and watch our shows. We've finally realized what damage movies like Sharknado have done to our channel. We promise to bring back the kind of shows that got you interested in watching us in the first place like Stargate, Farscape, Battlestar Galactica, Eureka, etc!

Everyone: I don't know, you'll have to give us more than just promises

SyFy: OK, here, look at all those new shows like The Expanse, Happy!, Deadly Class, Dark Matter, and Channel Zero

Everyone: Oh wow, maybe you are finally turning things arou-

SyFy: All these shows have been cancelled.

Everyone: Ah

WHAT PEOPLE THINK ETHICAL ISSUES IN AI ARE: wow.... we're creating... new life........

WHAT ETHICAL ISSUES IN AI ACTUALLY ARE: techbros worshiping the almighty algorithm, not caring to look at what bad patterns the machines are picking up (racism, sexism, etc) and how to avert them, and overreliance on neural networks meaning that said algorithms are treated as magical black boxes where nobody wants to (or can, really) point out exactly how the equation works (and why it may be faulty)
