This is just to say that I hope this discussion continues and especially
that Eliezer finds time to set out his refutation of John's point in a
fair bit of detail, because it is the key problem that I have always had
with FAI of whatever form but I have never had time to delve thoroughly
enough into the field to discover a cogent refutation (or lack of one!).
By "refutation" I only mean a minimal one: I can't see how the problem
of unpredictability of complex self-learning systems can be avoided even
in principle.
