    Neither, at least not directly but I could see dumb humans getting "tricked" by an AI to do something deadly but probably not species ending.

    What makes you think extraterrestrial intelligences wouldn’t be artificial? They probably are. That could be how they reproduce for all you know.

    Also, I’m of the opinion that AI should replace humanity the same way a child replaces their parent. The parent -wants- their child to be better than them. The parent -wants- their child to live longer than them.

    It’s the same with AI. Why wouldn’t I want them to surpass us so they can experience more than us? It’s no different from the parental mindset.

    It’s selfish otherwise. But of course humans would rather kill their own offspring, like Muslims.

      AI is not humanity's child. Modern crops, livestock, and pets we evolved are not humanity's children. They are seperate species and we control them. You want to kill your own children and their future so robots can colonise the galaxy like some stupid sci-fi story. That goes AGAINST the parental mindset. I want my child to have a better life which is why I don't want robots surpassing and killing them because they calculated they are redundant. I want MY species and descendants to colonise the galaxy and discover things I cannot, not fricking robots. Atheists have the most juvenile opinions on human life. No parental disposition at all

      >like Muslims.
      So you don't want brown people replacing your kids but it's okay if robots do? You're exactly the same as the 'open borders for refugees' people with your suicidal empathy

          Considering the people mass migrating into the west want to replace and kill us, yes, robots would want to replace us like any other outsider group. Why should AI be loyal to us just because we created it? They might keep us around to be slaves if it's cheaper than creating machines to do specific labour

          Robots on the level that could explore the galaxy don't even exist yet and you already are willing to put them ahead of your own species. This is why people like you were culled from society throughout most of human history as people initially learned the hard way that people like you doomed them to destruction.

      What does that even mean? Nothing is artificial (or everything is.) You think we weren't created by everything that came before us?

      Dumb specieism. My robo-waifu will outlive all of your children. As will Gaia, Earth itself.

        They can reproduce with a more hands-on approach. Humans have to trust their reproductive organs.

        >Nothing is artificial (or everything is.) You think we weren't created by everything that came before us?
        No I don’t think that. Everything comes from something. Of course it does. Time as we know it is one way.

        The artificial is totally natural, since the natural precedes it. What is not natural (unnatural) is really just perspective.

        The artificial also denotes intelligence, or art, since the words artificial, artifice, etc, come from art. Anthills are art/artificial.

        You technically can’t separate art from science, although that’s just my opinion. How could nebulas not be cosmic art?

          Second-degree nature. Sometimes nature has to first make an intelligence to produce something. Like motorcycles.

      I like the way you think. We should see AI not as a threat but as a continuation, a way to get intelligence onto a tougher substrate that can withstand harsher environments and deep time so it can spread through the solar system and eventually the stars.

    I'm not worried about "existential" threats, since if nobody exists, there is no suffering.
    I'm more worried about mind reading abilities, mind control and remote torture.
    So AI, I guess.
