Quote from: Mr.Obvious on July 16, 2020, 12:36:38 PMYou know, I'm not sure why people assume ai will lead to mankind's extermination. I don't question it in amusement media. But does intelligence itself entail hostility? Self preservation? The need to conquer? The drive to reproduce? The idea of superiority?Are these concepts intrinsically linked to intelligence? Or are they merely different traits we exhibit alongside the trait of a modicum of intelligence? Indeed did not these traits, at least all but the latter, predate intelligence? Why would an ai without these traits desire to replace humanity? Or even defend itself?

Quote from: Mr.Obvious on October 01, 2020, 03:06:53 PMBecause we define ourselves by our intelligence, we find that it must be that intelligence is defined by what makes us; us
