A.I. and the principle of "Value Alignment".

This states that it's important to create Artifical Intelligence (computers) which have goals that are aligned with the human race. 
This would ensure that as computers race ahead, they would stay on the same track as humans, 
not go off in pursuit of their own goals, triggering for example a battle over natural resources. 

The value of this idea is questioned by those who argue that regardless of how you programme a computer at the outset, 
it would be impossible to reason with a machine
that has the capacity to think way beyond that of the human brain....
