I can think of no plan using present conventional police or military forces that does not create more risks than it solves. You can buy a few months or so by suspending the operation of any AGI server warehouses that become publicly known. But the AGI programmes that don't come to light will be much more likely to be *bad* than are the ones that make themselves known. Maybe with technology advances and global police/military ethical maturity; maybe you could call in the cavalry then. I don't see that in the world today.

might be a good idea to come up with one. I am not sure if this has been
discussed before (I am not aware of any discussions specifically for this).
