The purpose of this post is not to argue these claims in depth but to summarize the Critical Rationalist view on AI and also how this speaks to things like the Friendly AI Problem.

Unfortunately that makes this post not very useful. It's definitely interesting, but you're just making a bunch of assertions with very little evidence (mostly just that smart people like Ayn Rand and a quantum physicist agree with you).

My intent was to summarise the CR view on AI. I've providing links so you can read more.

EDIT: BTW I disagree that I have made "a bunch of assertions". I have provided arguments, for example, about induction. I suspect, also, that you think observation - or evidence - comes first and I have argued against that.
