Hey you -- you're completely misrepresenting what I said!

If you read my original post, I was describing

* a layered architecture for minimizing the already small risk involved
in experimenting with infrahuman AGI's

* the possible use of formal verification tech to verify the correctness
of this layered architecture

I was not positing a long-term AI Friendliness architecture, rather an
architecture to improve the safety of running experiments with
infrahuman AI, which will help us gain knowledge about AI and
Friendliness that will help us to build the theoretical tools needed to
create a good Friendliness architecture.
