I will be arguing the opposite of pop-geek culture, essentially playing Robots Advocate.
It's easy to just say "Skynet" or "robot uprising", like it is a dystopian inevitability. We need to keep the conversation going past those memes. Dystopia isn't inevitable if we pay attention.
About me: I currently build autonomous vehicles, focusing on software, AI, and HW/SW prototyping. I read about neural nets almost 30 years ago, and have been interested ever since. I often wonder when my AI's will be mature enough to be told about Asimov.
