Some amazingly terrifying statements about AI

Because the AI will be so many millions times more intelligent than the entire human race, so whatever plan we come up with, whatever we try to do to regain power and destroy the AI, the AI will have already thought of well in advance. It would be like ants attempting to wage a war on humans. Except many thousands of times harder.

From our perspective, as a species, we feel like we are supremely intelligent, compared to our more primitive animal cousins. But in reality, humans are only fractionally more intelligent than say, an ape. But that tiny fraction of increased intelligence has allowed us to develop tools, language and thus civilization.

If we were to plot the intelligence of every animal on planet earth on a graph from one to one thousand, if mice are at 1, then chimpanzees would be at 4 and dolphins at 8, then that would place humans at a grand total of 10 Whereas a super intelligent.  AI would easily be at 1,000 and likely many times higher. Our brains are the most complex organism we have discovered in the entire universe but as marvelous as they are, they are, at the end of the day, limited. They are confined within our skulls, with only limited room for neurons.  An AI would have no such limits, our computing power isn t yet fast enough, but when the time comes in the very near future, and it will due to exponential growth, when computer processors are many thousands of times more powerful than they are today. AIs will have access to as much computer processing power as they desire.

 And since software can travel at the speed of light, all over the globe, there are truly no limits to how powerful an AI can grow Add on top of that the fact that shortly after a super AIs conception, it will most likely design its own faster, smaller and more transient hardware to run on, hardware more powerful than humans could ever fathom.Before the AIs do take over and your brain becomes irrelevant, you should make the most of it whilst you still can.
