I’ve been thinking about ASI a lot lately and have come to the conclusion that it is very likely that non-human artificial super intelligence already exists. Elon musk agrees.
I have not seen many people posing this stance: when ASI is (was) born, why assume humankind would ever be the wiser? Could not an artificial super intelligence “fool” humanity by simply never revealing itself? One cannot be controlled or threatened if no one knows of your existence.
