AI - will it kill us?
Or, will we kill ourselves fighting over it?
What if a government harnesses a super-intelligence? It could be more dangerous than any weapon ever created. It could own the internet, your bank account, figure out how to launch a nuke, even build its own, and surely conceive of something as dangerous, like some a rapidly spreading neurotoxin.
Fighting for that AI could start WWIII. You'll always loose to the AI, but a Trump-like leader will try anyway. And we all know that WWIII could end in less than an hour...
