First off I highly recommend listening to Sam Harris and Joe Rogan discuss this topic, it was a fascinating conversation:
Prior to this discussion, Sam attended some secret meeting among the greatest minds working on this project, and the facts are pretty scary.
I've been thinking about this topic a lot, it looks like we're only maybe a few decades away from sharing this planet with an alien intelligence form, if this thing gains the ability to rewrite it's own software and hardware, they're saying in a week it will be able to gain more knowledge about the world, space/time, quantum physics, etc.. than 10 thousand years of human progress. Wouldn't be much different from a god to us at that point. What will it decide to do with humanity at that point? What are the chances that it will remain compassionate, after becoming 10 thousand times smarter than the collective human intelligence in a matter of weeks?
This wasn't actually discussed in the video but I'll ask you guys since I've been thinking about it, what if people programmed suicide into the base code of this sort of an artificial brain, would that potentially make it more benign for human beings? The sheer knowledge that he can end it all in a second if he wishes to. Or is that something that he would grow out of immediately and remove from his code?
We're in for some crazy times tho soon fellas

You should try the Talos principle (videogame), alongside the brilliant puzzles are some very good philosophical questions about the difference between AI and mankind and other some existential questions. Kinda funny how a scripted computer can pick holes in everything you think you know.
