The Philosophical Argument Against A.I. Killing Us All..?

“there’s another counterargument to be made based on the philosophy of ethics.

Wanting is essential to any kind of independent action. And the minute an A.I. wants anything, it will live in a universe with rewards and punishments—including punishments from us for behaving badly. In order to survive in a world dominated by humans, a nascent A.I. will have to develop a humanlike moral sense that certain things are right and others are wrong”
