Re: AGI Reproduction? (Safety)

I understand that you have good intentions with AGI. My worry
involves -accidentally- creating an unfriendly AGI (And this worry applies
to anybody who builds an AGI). You can have good intentions and still
create an unfriendly AI because of some design flaw (even if it appears to
be a great design). I am worried because no one really knows how a Seed AI
will function when it is turned on, and whether it will be friendly or not.
There are so many things that can go wrong.

This is why I think that the system and it's safety should be analyzed, and
go through at least several phases of testing before activation is even

I would also feel better if these tests are conducted by a team of
independent AGI researchers rather than just one firm, or RGE Corp. by
itself. You can have many shots at creating a Seed AI, but you only get one
shot at creating a friendly one. If this is the Seed AI that is successful,
then I say make that friendly shot count. Since you want to be open with
the technology, I think that it is an idea worth considering.
