So you're saying that no intelligent being has comitted suicide until
today? Sounds nice to me!

Why do you assume an AI must have "happiness"? And, making assumptions
in a similar way to you, I can ask: if the AI is so powerful, why
can't it predict that it will end up 100% happy and decide to just
shutdown for thinking it's all pointless.

I've never seen someone both with such a narrow view of an AI can be
like AND with such difficulty to accept that reality might be
different from that narrow view.
