The AI race: China aims to lead by 2030

https://www.theverge.com/2017/11/1/1...ition-us-china

Google's CEO says we're not paying enough attention to the progress in China.

It's a potentially scary subject. If AI can be designed that can accelerate the development of new AI, I've read that whoever gets there first wins. Once someone is on that faster-than-human technology development curve, nobody else can catch up. So we're in a race to be the first to develop a potentially dangerous technology, which isn't a good environment for putting safety measures in place.

Unfortunately the arts and sciences are taking a bus-long backseat to spending on defense and the MIC...which could be rendered completely impotent anyway via China's eWar hackers. Shitty strategery by the current maladministration who are more interested in bread and circuses deception to excuse their incompetence and cover for possibly illegal and/or criminal pre and post election activity.

The Chinese seem to like our movies though, so tinsel and Hollywood might be spared.

...and in terms of defense, this could be the most important thing to fund.

Apparently the cureall solution for any Murkin dilemma is more tax-cuts.

I was actually thinking that when the Chinese AI get smart enough to realize it's in their (or its) best interest to eliminate humanity, will they stick with the Chinese and leave us Yankee slackers alone?

Or will they at least start with the Chinese, and then move to areas around China like India, and so forth...if they do that, there are so many of them that hopefully it will take a while to get through all of them and get around to frying us...

As long as it buys US enough time to become completely shitfaced, and after a heavily Viagra or Cialis-enhanced nightlong nookie session with the wifey, then I'll be good and ready.
