It's difficult to measure if the AIs will rapidly come up with a cheap
and easy method of uploading us all into superintelligences as well,
or if a single AI will happen to take over the world, and if so, what
kind of programming it has and whether its programming will lead it to
implementing an entirely new sort of economy or maybe wiping out
humanity altogether, etc.
