OK. Now apply your arguments to human intelligence and lack of reality-based reference points for intentionality. We are so quick to point out the risks of intelligent machinery because it shows our own intelligence to be so much less than we’ve cracked it up to be. Religion is an artificial reference. Morality is an artificial reference. Economics is a poor substitute for intelligent consideration, yet it rules our empire. Now, we are supposed to be afraid of machines that take advantage of our willful ignorance, but we can’t do anything about our ignorance: we can only retard development of competitors. High school once again.
