I thought that was *obviously* an exaggeration. If you got a reasonable
group of people together I doubt you'd have this type of problem. Neither
Ben nor Eliezer are likely to think a .01% chance of the AI going rogue is
unreasonable (unless there turns out to be a darn good reason to think
so). The other people selected for such duty should have a similar view
(on this subject) as Eliezer & Ben. My point is simply that individuals
and probably most development teams have too limited a perspective to make
this type of decision alone. The discussions on this list should be a good
example of that.
