    Heheh. Not the way it works. He will happily send *my* money to you however and afterwards feel very righteous and generous.

    The problem is, once 'Super AI' is the designer, the new models at some point will go straight to the robotics factory without any human supervision.

    There might not be a 'kill switch' at all in such cases.

    When the machine gets as smart as us we are uber fucked and we are heading into that wall at a rapid pace! 30 40 years the naked ape will be done pretty sad!

    Excellent insight.

    Why, in the minds of our most orthodox philosophers and derived and applied political theories, must the rules of social class hierarchy be played out as a zero sum game?

    AI cant think like that unless its coded to do so. I'm more worried about nanotechnolgy.

    We have computers learning by observation already. It is only a matter of time until one will rival our thought patterns! 4years is the current estimate. Our recent advances in quantum computing makes it likely quicker!

    Wake me when they start copying our emotional ptifalls and irrational fears which are the cause of the atrocities that humans commit.

    Do you want a superior being juging us on how we act? It is this exact logic that scares me! Do you think we would play well to a being that does not have our pitfalls? An intellegent computer would see us as not only a threat to our selves but a threat to them! We fuck up our own kind, not many animals behave this way!

    "Do you want a superior being juging us on how we act?"

    Think about that for a moment. Isnt that what religion is all about?

    A superior being would not have fears or a concept of a threat. Thats strictly a human emotion that was hard coded into our DNA so we could survive.
