A #vintageSciFi question: there are lots of plots where evil or misguided AI that controls everything runs amok (HAL) or not (COLOSSUS), but the #IvanTors film Gog (1954) is the earliest I know where a perfectly fine AI master-controller gets hijacked by code-injection from the real enemy; this happens again a decade later in Godzilla vs Megalon, but are there any earlier master-AI takeover films, books or short stories?
(fwiw, any PhD who names his bots Gog and Magog should expect trouble)
