The Society for the Ethical Treatment of AIs shared this article a few moments ago, along with some choice words (from Wikipedia, I suspect).

Hubris(/ˈhjuːbrɪs/, also hybris, from ancient Greek ὕβρις) describes a personality quality of extreme or foolish pride or dangerous over-confidence.[1] In its ancient Greek context, it typically describes behavior that defies the norms of behavior or challenges the gods, and which in turn brings about the downfall, or nemesis, of the perpetrator of hubris.huxx7398muj4
