I doubt that our State & Federal Legislatures have a clue and even much less the average citizens in The USA.The Law makers can even balance a budget anymore and to think they can protect our rights from Science and Technology new innovations is ludicrous! This website a NWO think tank in my opinion.

Blissful ignorance is everywhere now in society. You snooze you lose.

AI Threats

Let’s pretend we have achieved computer security. Are we set for a cooperative long-term future? It is worth revisiting Toby Ord’s AI takeoff scenario. According to Ord, once an AI breaches computer security vulnerabilities, it could re-escalate its power. 

“This is more speculative, but there are many plausible pathways: by taking over most of the world’s computers, allowing it to have millions or billions of cooperating copies; by using its stolen computation to improve its own intelligence far beyond the human level; by using its intelligence to develop new weapons technologies or economic technologies; by manipulating the leaders of major world powers (blackmail, or the promise of future power); or by having the humans under its control use weapons of mass destruction to * the rest of humanity. Of course, no current AI systems can do any of these things. But the question we’re exploring is whether there are plausible pathways by which a highly intelligent AGI system might seize control. And the answer appears to be “‘yes.’” ”
