Apologies about the previous post, only the last two paragraphs belong to me. Nested quotes should be easier

Nick: "You can still do one heck of a lot better than a human."

A lot better than humans can be done. Since humans are having lots of trouble getting our heads round this intelligence stuff, I find it very very unlikely that the first one will be awe inspiringly dangerous.

Humans our dumb, there are no sivler bullets for implementing a real life AI, so real life AI is likely to only slightly better than humans if not worse for a long time.

AI for me is about doing the right processing at the right time, if you are doing the wrong processing it doesn't matter how much of it you are doing or how precisely you are doing it, you are not going to get much use out of it.
