I have thought for some time it would be a good idea to have multi-
human/proto-AGI(s) in close collaboration - a sort of human/AGI complex -
as an early stage in AGI development. That way humans and AGIs can
evolve/grow up together - increasing the chances of mutal understanding
and respect.

(A risk of this, if it is not handled well, is that the human/AGI compexes
could become dangerously competitive. This risk needs to be managed
down to being unlikely)

Cheers, Philip
