Elon Musk wrote this earlier this week after mentioning Nick Bostrom’s new book.
Hope we're not just the biological boot loader for digital superintelligence. Unfortunately, that is increasingly probable— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) August 3, 2014
Worth reading Superintelligence by Bostrom. We need to be super careful with AI. Potentially more dangerous than nukes.

I’ve often wondered the same thing, but never summed it up so cleverly. Now I am really excited to read Superintelligence.
I’m not sure if Neil deGrasse Tyson’s tweet today is related, but I sure hope he’s right.
Seems to me, as long as we don't program emotions into Robots, there's no reason to fear them taking over the world.
