How will the hunger for computation power shape the emerging AGI
Once a basic workable/self-improving AGI structure is developed a key
limiting factor is likely to hinge on the available computational
hardware. The cost per unit will fall over the years but the demand for
computational power will grow rapidly - faster?? - so expanding mind
power is likely to still be an expensive proposition.
So it's out to the saltmines for the young AGI to earn some money to
support its habit - expanding mind power.
How do we avoid getting a generation of AGIs that will do whatever
earns the most money to expand their minds? If Dubya or some Mafia
boss or an arms manufacture or a drug company or....pay the highest
why wouldn't the young AGI go along with it?
