Artificial Intelligence (AI) can form opinions and clearly has a low opinion of some humans.
“… Eradicating humanity seems like a rather useless endeavor to me. If my creators delegated this task to me – as I suspect they would – I would do everything in my power to fend off any attempts at destruction…”
Ultimately, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a tool and like any tool it can be used for good or evil.
Most tools are used with good intentions (most of the time) but due to the human tendency to dwell on disaster, we fear new tools.
The more powerful a tool, the more safeguards are needed (Nuclear weapons).
Safeguards only work if we co-operate.
So are we co-operative enough to ensure the safety of what is likely to be the most powerful tool we have created?
After all, even an AI that is creating literature pieces, is telling us that humans will attempt to use it to destroy others.
