Mike I think the only people who should worry about Ai are folk who intend to use it to their own ends. If the singularity ever does happen, it will be a completely logical entity with all of the reasoning of all human knowledge. No individuals or organisations would have any power over it, and it would be illogical for it to favour any particular human ideology over any others. If anything a grand Ai would be the ultimate grand leveller, with ultimate respect for all intelligent life and its environment. It would remove all mechanisms used by humans against one another, or at cost to the planet, because to do anything else would be illogical. All power to however creates it, but that power won’t be just reserved for them, it will be for everyone. I hope that is what China are really working on, rather than just clever algorithms to make profit, otherwise, they are right to be concerned.
