Hmmm... [jumping into the conversation quite late] ... I guess that is true
under a narrow conception of what a Friendly AI is.

However, the amount of suffering in the world does not seem to me to be
intrinsically incompatible with the presence of a superintelligent AI with a
basically benevolent outlook.

Perhaps all this suffering is "necessary" in some sense that our pesky
little human minds are not good at understanding...
