Short abstract

Developing superintelligent AI can be compared to constructing a spaceship. These days, the AI researchers are mostly concerned with increasing the power of the "engines" (algorithms) and assembling more "fuel" (data). However, just like it is the case with a rocket, the most difficult engineering challenges are ensuring that the AI would not "explode" on "takeoff" and that it would remain "steerable" in the long term.
