From Engineering Utopia:

The actual outcome of a positive Singularity will likely be completely different, for example much less anthropomorphic.

Huh? Wouldn't a positive Singularity be engineered for human preferences, and therefore be more anthropomorphic, if anything?

Had an odd idea: Since so much of the planet is Christian, do you suppose humanity's CEV would have a superintelligent AI appear in the form of the Christian god?
