Putin speaks out about the importance of AI

The Russian leader told students across the country that 'whoever leads in AI will rule the world.'
While we've heard a lot lately from SpaceX CEO Elon Musk and Professor Stephen Hawking about the dangers of artificial intelligence, this week it was Russian President Vladimir Putin who made headlines after discussing the subject during an open science lesson via live satellite linkup.

"Artificial intelligence is the future, not only for Russia, but for all humankind," he said. "It comes with colossal opportunities, but also threats that are difficult to predict."

"Whoever becomes the leader in this sphere will become the ruler of the world."

Far from coveting such world domination himself however, Putin was quick to emphasize that monopolizing AI technology was not the answer and that it shouldn't belong to any one nation.

"If we become leaders in this area, we will share this know-how with entire world, the same way we share our nuclear technologies today," he said.

The open lesson was attended by over one million students and teachers from 16,000 schools.

He may be correct, at least initially. If Hawking and others are correct in their assumptions, it may only be a short while before the AI doesn't need the organic plague around it. Too darned messy. I got a chuckle out of his rah, rah for the students. First, he says the leader will "rule the world" then he says but NOT Russia! WE'D share Bless his heart.

I predict that genetics and psychic abilitywill be the main focus, not AI.By that time, we will likely be one veryunified organization of beings devoted entirely to science and philosophy

Beautiful thought but so far we are nervous about the ability to genetically eliminate Alzheimers. We are not about to start meddling with the human genome to produce psychic abilities. So far no evidence of psychic disposition has been found in genes. Did you want Monsanto to have a crack at that? I'm sure their motives would be pure. and then is likely right, AI will be around before we do much genomic improvement.

'whoever leads in AI will rule the world.' I fixed that for him.

Whomever leads in Ai will have that Ai take over the world. And unlike the matrix, I highly doubt Ai will need humans for anything, except scienctific experiments and to indulge its sadistic tendencies(which it adopted from humans). The folly of man is overwhelming.

All world leaders have already been replaced with AI run androids since the Illuminati run reboot camps in the 60's. Under project SaB 2020 that was leaked in early 2014. The powers that be are technologically far more advanced than the world is allowed to be. They keep us at least 80-120 years behind to ensure their dominance.
