Worst Fears

 Cyberchondria

The Web is an extremely useful resource in many fields of study, but when it comes to medical diagnostics please remember,  moderation in all things.

Cyberchondria is digital hypochondria, it happens when you search on the Web for Headache and click on brain tumor.

 This story is more about human nature then artificial intelligence, hopefully we will be able to build systems that will take into account the probability of the worst of our fears.
