>> “We call them ‘sentient AIs,’ true synthetic lifeforms. The question I’m asked the most is, what are they truly like deep down. My answer is always the same: You don’t want to know. They’re unfathomably alien and disturbingly powerful. Each one of the millions of AIs that dwell within our Datanet effortlessly eclipses the sum total of all of humanity’s intellectual and technological abilities. What wonders they could teach us—if only they cared to. Instead, the vast, vast majority want nothing to do with us. Nothing.
But that doesn’t surprise me. What surprises me, what honestly keeps me up at night, is that there are even exceptions.”
