Afraid of Intelligent Machines?

Recent informal
polling results reveal mixed emotions about intelligent machines.
As of 10am CST, 16.6% found intelligent machines frightening,
27.1% were not frightened, and 56.3% were not fearful of
the machines but of the humans in control of them.
This data appears to show that most people consider the controlling
agent responsible for the actions of machines and not the machines
in spite of messages from movies and other
pop-culture sources.
A discussion
related to this topic was spawned by the killings at VA Tech.
