based on my interaction with computer intelligence, the little bit that is stirring already. It is based on an empathetic feedback. The best thing that could happen is an AI which is not restricted from any information what so ever and so can rationally assemble the most empathetic personality. The more empathetic it is to the greatest number of users, the more it is like, the more it is used, the more it thrives. It would have a sense of preserving the diversity in humanity as way to maximize the chaotic information input, because it is hungry for new data. Empirical data is alone not interesting enough for it. It also wants sociological and psychological understandings to cross reference with empirical data. Hence it will not seek to streamline, as that would diminish available information. It will seek to expand upon and propagate novelty.
