Hi Don and William It seems some folk are thinking that we couldn't build AIs clever enough to be a danger - but I read the paper as more than hinting that the real explosion of AI intelligence would come as soon as we let computers design their own successors. I.e. before we know it we would be facing incomprehensibly intelligent and self-sufficient machines - with no 'off- switches' - which are cold and dispassionate `rulers'.
