Gordon, this is an entirely different issue, of course.

I am not at all sure that a super human intelligence is more dangerous than
a would-be FAI intelligence.

Super human intelligence is to some degree a known quantity...

Nonhuman AGI intelligence is an uncharted domain, and in my view (as has
been copiously discussed on this list before!) it is very hard to guarantee
in advance that a nonhuman AGI will actually be Friendly.... And I look
forward to understanding more about this subject as true human-level AGI
gets closer...
