More on the great AI debate

Well written article. How can boldness be programmed into AI? I have been a life-long admirer of Alexander the Great. How can his boldness be programmed into any AI? Is that even desirable given the fact that even Alexander's greatest defenders are quick to point out that he was a dangerous Psychopath who killed most of his closest friends and associates. how can AI benefit the world when most people in the world refuse to lead, follow, or get the hell out of the way. They simply are there and every organization, military or civilian, must get the most out of these people. Will AI make those of us still working so efficient that most of us will have to be paid to do nothing? Already in our evolution no industry, including agriculture and mining, is labor intensive. I think AI will accelerate this trend. What do you think? By Paul Studdard on 2014 12 15
