What's wrong with monetizing the prehuman interim applications of an AI
project? And where did the word "transhuman" appear in Peter Voss's
post? Knowing Peter Voss, it's pretty easy to guess that he's thinking
about reaching for transhumanity at some point in his company's lifetime,
but I doubt most strongly that he thinks a transhuman sentience would
permit verself to be packaged and sold. Though of course Peter Voss can
speak for himself in this.
