ArchiTECHt Daily: Suicide and superintelligence in the AI world
By ARCHITECHT • Issue #28 • View online
I don’t have a lot to say up top today, except that I was quite pleased to come across a research paper titled “Don’t Fear the Reaper: Refuting Bostrom’s Superintelligence Argument.” 
Bostrom’s book Superintelligence is thought-provoking, but also is partially to blame for the whole AI doomsday discussion that has taken the world by storm over the past couple years. If, like me, you think many of its ideas are a little preposterous, you might welcome this attempt to deflate them. 
And, yes, I am more than willing to eat a generous portion of crow should AI go horribly awry in my lifetime.
