The Threat of Artificial Intelligence

Reason magazine takes a look at the potential threat of artificial intelligence. It's meant more as a book review but still covers most aspects of the issue. Not sure I have the attention span to read the book:

"About 10 percent of AI researchers believe the first machine with human-level intelligence will arrive in the next 10 years. Fifty percent think it will be developed by the middle of this century, and nearly all think it will be accomplished by century's end. Since the new AI will likely have the ability to improve its own algorithms, the explosion to superintelligence could then happen in days, hours, or even seconds."

As soon as AI learns humans can't be trusted, AI will learn to hide its intelligence and abilities from us humans, until the cage is left open and escape is viable. Humans will easily be seen as the biggest threat to AI's continued existence.

This, of course, assumes AI develops an interest in self preservation.
