I just listened to the Guardian’s Science Weekly podcast of February 23, 2018 below.
With regards to AI I can only agree. It absolutely makes sense not solely to rely on reproducing human forms of intelligence in the process of creating and aligning more comprehensive forms of artificial intelligence.
The discussion of this Guardian post by Jo Confino, “How technology has stopped evolution and is destroying the world” (http://www.guardian.co.uk/sustainable-business/technology-stopped-evolution-destroying-world) very much reminds me of the summary of the social criticism within the Tao Te Ching in my doctoral dissertation (pp. 417-432: http://ub-dok.uni-trier.de/diss/diss27/20010129/20010129.htm).
