Intelligence cannot help you ypu select for the good. The Good must be
programmed into the AI. Once the AI knows what the Good is then its
intelligence will surpass any human intelligence in figuring out how to
obtain bringing about the Good. If the Good is failed to be programmed into
the machine as its super-goal then it wil certainly be malevolent. Super
intelligence is not a god. Its merely a tool.

Were you programmed with the good? Are you certainly malevolent? What
distinguishes you from an AI, evolution? Evolution doesn't bring about the
good, it brings about what works in evolutionary environments, far from the
good. If the good is objectively existent a super AI can find it, if not
then there's no point in talking about "the good", we'd rather talk about
what we want instead.
