What is everyone's interpretation of this? It's a great quote but one that seems to have a number of meanings.


Who said it? To me it means that the AI in question would recognise that being 'too smart' would be regarded as a threat by humans and therefore that it is in its own best interest not to reveal its true level of intelligence.

Of course the obvious next, somewhat horrific question is -

how, then, would we ever know?....and

.....has it happened already? (insert suitably dramatic music here)


Thanks for your responses everyone. They were more or less the conclusion I came too. Great quote, isn't it? It's by Ian McDonaldson in River of Gods.

Basinski: I wanted Cascade to become this crystalline organism like a star or a liquid crystal spaceship, a jellyfish traveling through the galaxy…
