Yeah I was thinking the same thing: the computer could be as intelligent as it wants, but it must have an output method to actually perform work. Plus, raw intelligence does not always win. For example, say Einstein got into a fight with a gang member: chances are, Einstein would be far more intelligent... Chances are, Einstein would get his ass kicked. Hell, there are humans who jump into zoo enclosures and get killed by animals.

There seems to be this notion that just because an ASI machine gathers more intelligence than us, that it will automatically take over, but there is more to that than raw intelligence. There would have to be reproduction, manpower, output capabilities, etc...

True, technically it could manipulate humans to carry out its "master plan" but, this is starting to sound like a bad movie, LOL.

Straw Poll

Were you affected by the geomagnetic storms this past weekend?
Communication disruptions, electrified pipes, random unexplained blue-screens in Windows - the list of effects is terrifying.
