I recently corresponded with a military analyst about the artificial
intelligence and SI. But it made me wonder, what are people's view here
about the desirability of maximizing or minimizing awareness in the U.S.
military establishment about the implications of superintelligence? My own
inclination (which I'm not 100% confident in) is that they ought to know
about it; and the same goes for nanotechnology.
