No, it's not. That's a profound mistake, in fact. It's important
to create a being with a rich, robust morality that can make
decisions for itself about what "good" is. Initially we'll want
those judgements to look like those a "nice person" would make, but
if the AI can't learn that from conversations with humans, it's not
smart enough to be worrisome anyways.
