Should VR systems have a privacy policy of their own?

In general, it is hard to say what data is our “private data” and what is not. Some of them are easy to say, e.g., name, email, age, gender, etc. However, we generate a lot of data, and those can…

Should we be scared of what we might create? This is a question that I had ever since I watched the original Terminator movie. Will we ever create a machine that decides we do not deserve to live on this planet anymore?
