The real danger of AI is distinctly human
When you think of AI being dangerous, you probably think of the classic “killer computers” portrayed in movies. Skynet, HAL 9000, whatever that evil computer in I, Robot was called - you know the ones.

Silver Lining's first Golf Day is a hole in one!
On Friday November 10th, we teed up at Skylark Golf and Country Club for an enjoyable day of golfing greatness with some of our customers and local businesses.
