I'm trying to stay out of this, but I do want to ask you something:
How many computer science Ph.D.s would I have to get to say, in
writing, that that's utter nonsense for you to thoroughly
re-evaluate your position?


They say:  "The first AIs will be built by the military as weapons."
And I'm  thinking:  "Does it even occur to you to try for something
other  than  the default  outcome?"  See http://shrunklink.com/cdiz
