So you've got everything covered then?
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought there was a risk that the AI might
*not* be friendly, despite all the smartest peoples' best efforts.
And the point that I was trying to make is that we are facing an existential
risk right now . . . so unless you've got that friendly AI ready to go
*right* *now*, we need a different plan. What I am trying to accomplish in
bringing this to your attention is to make sure that Evil people are not in
control of the world when said AI is developed.
