I agree with Ben, and would like to mention an even more fundamental issue:
Over years of discussion if have also not heard convincing arguments that
idea of a "verifiable FAI" makes sense, and/or is at all possible. For
example, FAI inherently requires a dynamic goal structure (ie. not
pre-defined) operating in unpredictable environment.
I don't have time to enter into the debate (to busy actually building AGI),
but just wanted to stress that not everyone here buys into some of these
Another assumption that I don't share is that "normal" AGI is likely to be
"Unfriendly" - ie. detrimental to us.

Eli> You can't "add Friendliness". It adds requirements like determinism
and verifiability to the entire architecture. It rules out entire classes
of popular AI techniques, like evolutionary programming,
I have never seen you give a convincing argument in favor of this point,
though I have heard you make it before.
