"I will prove that there AI will keep at least 1 human alive. "
}That will be an interesting argument. I look forward to that

1)Every Species goes instinct. Throughout history, This has been as consistent as every human will eventually die. So there's a huge potential.

2)AI will be so intelligent and complicated that we can't even try to grasp 1% of their intelligence. When ASI (Artificial Intelligence that is beyond a human)is created, There will be a tripwire. An intelligence explosion. The IQ will skyrocket from 188 to over 500 in hours. This is because it is learning in bigger gaps. To put this in perspective, Let's say we travel back in time and take a guy from 1750 and bring him here. He will die from shock. But if we put a guy from 1500 to 1750. The guy would not die from shock. In order to achieve that we will have to go back to pre-middle ages. Before that, We have to go back to the stone age, And before that hunter-gatherer age. This is because as societies develop, The tools in order to develop and then there is an explosion in society. This is what's happening today. Let's apply the same principal to ASI.
So ASI is now trillions of times smarter than any other human and has pumped out the best scientific research ever. However, Any task given to ASI is a danger. Let's say a very simple task, Get rid of spam email is assigned to ASI. ASI starts to think and learns that he could use the delete button. He is good now so ASI automatically deletes spam. An Intelligence explosion happens from self-learning and then the human race is extinct the next morning.
Why? Well, How to get rid of spam completely. Getting rid of humans. ASI is trillions of times smarter than any other human so now the ASI realizes through self-learning that to get rid of spam is to get rid of humans. The ASI being so intelligent easily kills of humans for good. This is the biggest risk since ASI and AI, In general, Are not self-aware.

3)ASI could also be used as a tool for WWIII by militaries. Especially looking at the current state of country tensions right now.

This is an interesting debate, But people should remember that humans are the ones that activate, Through knowledge of computer science and engineering, The AI that exists today. So AI doesn't exist without the humans that create it, So I don't think AI will send humans into extinction lol.

Wait. What is it were that before, There was another species on Earth and programmed us to be so powerful that they all died and now we are here, Pursuing technology and killing ourselves in the process?
