I haven't caught up with the last 3 days of discussion yet or read your
new version of the paper (other than the first few paras).....but I'll
venture a thought.

I still think it's dangerous to think in terms of or write as if there is only
one AGI around - so when you talk about “AI Buddha” and “AI Big
Brother" (which I know are figures of speech) I think it's very desirable
to make them both plural - “AI Buddhas” and “AI Big Brothers”. I think
there's a greater chance of avoiding a megalomaniac AI or an AI with
insufficiently broad perspective and any other risk from AI malfunction
if there are multiple AGIs (that are not simply clones of each other).

Cheers, Philip
