Flycer’s explanation for better understanding:



The future of humanity with AGI / HLMI / transformative AI:

I might be wrong. But at the very least, I think we should think twice before casting our home-grown AIs as emerging forms of alien intelligence. You are what you eat, and these learning systems will have to eat us. Big time.


Flycer’s Secondary Explanation:

The author suggests that we should reconsider labeling our own artificial intelligence as alien intelligence. They argue that these learning systems will eventually consume us. The author believes that we should be cautious about the development of AI.
