[ExI] Ex Machina, and what it says about A.I.

"In his thoughtful book Superintelligence: Paths, Dangers, Strategies
philosopher Nick Bostrom cautions of the dangers of AI, comparing our fate
to that of the gorillas: The same way that we can decide whether gorillas
live or die, an advanced AI can do the same to us."

*"Ex Machina* explores the theme, coupling it to another variable we don't
see in most philosophical or scientific analyses: It's not just the smarts
of the machine that can lead us to our demise; it, also, can have sex
appeal and seduce us in ways that are more emotional than intellectual. We
all have certain ideals of beauty. A smart machine can figure those out and
make itself irresistible. Rationally, we may want to destroy it; but
emotionally, we can't."
