How is self awareness a necessity for AI to pose a threat to humankind? I don't buy it.

He equates self awareness with desire.

AI is a threat when it strives for outcomes itself wants, regardless if we want it or not.

Because self-aware AI may act in its own interest, which may conflict with human interests.

But I think AI can be a threat well before self-awareness. Imagine AI programmed to create fake news that seamlessly merges with reality while pushing a particular agenda.

i don't disagree but i think artificial stupidity (ai systems making stupid mistakes because the people that built and trained them didn't understand them and/or used crap data) will destroy us first

Yes, exactly! The AIs will misunderstand human needs.

It doesn't need to act in it's own interest in order to be in conflict with human interest. What happens when a learning AI which is programmed to make blueberry muffins figures out that minced humans makes excellent fertilizer for it's ever expanding blueberry fields.

If you make you muffin robot with the capabilities to slaughter and mince humans, you're doing it wrong.

Asimov had it about right.

PS. You also employ a migrant worker on minimum wage to unplug any robot that starts mincing people. Just in case.

If the migrant worker's on minimum wage, he might let a couple of bosses get minced. Better pay for higher-quality anti-mincing

AI is smart enough to understand that the strategy of mincing humans will backfire, because at some point there will be no humans left to buy their perfectly formed blueberry muffins.

Laissez-faire capitalism suffers from the same dilemma - the superrich can't keep taking money from the poor, because at some point the poor will be too poor to buy the products that made the superrich super rich.

Could the actual threat come from within ourselves? When the wealthy and powerful choose ever-improving machines as servants, employees, babysitters, protectors and companions ("Siri? Alexa? Echo?") rather than befriend, support, train and trust other humans, they reflect a deep, subtle distrust and disdain for humans and their abilities. A symptom of the isolation of power and wealth? A flaw in the alpha personality? Their choices may lead them to a fate as luxurious and empty as the Emperor Qin, alone amidst a sea of terracotta warriors: a curiousity to perplex future archaeologists- or perhaps like post-apocalyptic madmen, chatting one-sidedly in a fortified mansion populated with mannequins while chaos reigns outside. Unless their wealth and talent is used to bring better lives to other humans caught in a social hierarchy only enriching the few, they improve nothing.

My dear fellow, how misguided you are.

Many of us are magnanimous by nature, and have therefore sought alternatives to the ever-loyal Siri.

Truth be told; I personally have tried Filipinos, Poles, even an itinerant Irishman, and not a single one of them was able to offer me immediate and accurate weather forecasts on demand without expecting "workers' rights" or some such god-awful sentimental tosh.

Until one can forcibly remind our social inferiors of the natural hierarchy, one is compelled to exploit technology in their stead.

Would you not?
