@Revolutionary Moderate, and to expand on something bothering me: A superintelligent AI that figures out how to solve climate change is worthless if world governments, corporations, and populations take no action or refuse to heed it. There's likely to be a critical gap of time between when AI can offer world-saving advice and when AI can actually save us itself.

    You'd think so, but it might be possible that we'll have superintelligent (if not exactly generally superintelligent) AI much, much sooner than you think

    It's also possible said super intelligence would be able to manipulate world leaders into enacting certain policies, or manipulating the outcome of elections to maneuver the right people into positions of power. This option would be safer than outright replacing humans themselves for the time being, and yield more results.

    It'd have to be indirect, such as through memes, social engineering, and using other people more receptive to it, because plenty world leaders might decide to not try to interact with such an AI directly at all. It might even become politicized like how wearing masks and 5G did.
