To me it’s even more terrifying if they are able to combine all these independent intelligences without a consciousness to govern how it acts. If it is simply a cold and calculating machine the odds of negative consequences are even more stark.

Ultimately consciousness is just a specific way in which electrical synapses interact. Replication of that in a machine isn’t impossible which is why I believe it is inevitable. Whether that is today or in a millennium is another matter.
