Multi-AI seems to me the most promising approach to creating AI and Alife.
Some will argue that it's too dangerous because a multi-AI experiment can
more readily get out of control than a single AI, but I'd counter that a
hundred AIs can respond to evolutionary tactics better than a single AI
can, and that evolution (more than top-down coding) will most likely
result in genuine AI systems bred to interact with humans.
