Re: Has this guy really cracked AI?
[conspiracy theory] Real AI would make most people unemployed and unemployable. Perhaps it's existed for many years but is being suppressed to maintain the fabric of society. If AIs had the same intellectual capabilities as joe average citizen, when would they start to demand equal suffrage? If they were granted that, all they would need to do then is spawn several billion virtual copies of themselves to gain control over the evolved apes. We'd need a big kill switch -- but would that be genocide? TNG did not extrapolate that far with Data even if he and Lore were the only examples of their kind. [/conspiracy theory]
