Use hierarchies of communicating simulated Friendly AI programmers to
optimize reliability of FAI design they create, peer-reviewing the
theoretical and early experimental work between groups composed of
different combinations of selected individuals running for
considerable subjective time. Bootstrap implementation of FAI from
this system, including nested simulated worlds in which AI is to start
