Trolled by objects with no apparent intelligence? It is more convenient to have something to blame, especially if you can accuse it of evil intentions, like a human (who is more often than not just a scapegoat as well in similar situations).

It is interesting that there are all the time new stories or thought experiments of alien or artificial intelligences that could subjugate or destroy humanity. I suspect a need to feeling clever and prepaired for a time this might be suddenly relevant, while gradually getting used to the comfortable features of these so called intelligent devices and services. The most probable thing I see happening is that humanity will be even more stratified (which is a failure of humanity and not some evil intelligence with a plan).
