How can they be concerned about AI and not see how obsolete Capitalism is

The following post was prompted by the New York Magazine article linked below.

Machines that can do everything better than humans and yet these big names in science and industry do not question human skill remaining as a commodity; any more than to question the whole notion of production itself remaining a commercial commodity enterprise.

The fact of the matter is, at at least one aspect of its basis, AI throws the notion of the economics of scarcity into question. Maybe that's what scares some of the rich movers and shakers the most.
