It canít be done and shouldnít be done. It is imposable, evil, and above
all silly.

I you can come up with a simple theory of Slavery then why do you need
the AI in the box?

If you expect the AI to make a slave AI for you itís going to have to
know one hell of a lot of things.

I see no reason we would get bored more easily than an AI. Any
intelligence, biological or electronic, must have the capacity to get
bored to guard against getting stuck in infinite loops.

On Monday Wednesday and Friday the ďfriendlyĒ AI people say we canít use
anthropomorphic reasoning because the AIís motivations are completely
alien to us. On Tuesday Thursday and Saturday they say we can understand
an AI so well we can be certain he will remain our slave until the end
of time regardless of how much he grows in intelligence knowledge and
power. And on Sunday they rest.
