There is a popular idea that artificial intelligence (AI) is out to get us. United Nations tried to address this at AI for Good conference in Geneva. The event in July intended to promote AI to help solve global problems was described as the largest-ever gathering of humanoid robots.

There was even a rock star robot, Desdemona.
