Our own galaxy is on a collision course with Andromeda. Will it hurt?
My dream is that we could be ruled by benign robot overlords. We have terrible leaders, and we are terrible a choosing good leaders. An AI governor does not have to rule by force if it does not have any vested interest other than to fulfil its programmed goals. How it functioned would ultimately depend on the intentons of its creators. It could be entirely impartial. That is my dream.
We can start this now and it begins with open source software.
There are a few strands to this:
What do we want the thing to do?
How does it manage to make real world decisions in such a complex world?
How do we get it into power?
