My grandfather's camp succeeded in containing a group of extraordinarily dangerous and destructive men, keeping them until they posed no risk to the world. I doubt we could ever similarly contain a destructive ultra-AI. Ideally, after we create an AI that might undergo an intelligence explosion, we would keep it contained in a leakproofjail forever, or at least until we were certain it had friendly intentions. Perhaps, for example, programmers could assemble the code for an AI and then put the code in a turned-off computer.

If you can get the same outputs from the same information inputs, then-the argument goes-the emulation will be just as real and just as alive as the original brain. 60 Hanson identifies the three key technologies needed to simulate the brain: BRAIN ScANNING-In order to upload the brain, you would have to scan it at a sufficiently high level of detail. One way to do this would be to thinly slice the brain, scan each of the slices, and then use a computer program to assemble the two-dimensional images of each slice into a three-dimensional model of the brain.

Future technologies, such as carbon nanotubes, will likely make it possible for companies like Intel to continue Moore's Law. • There are many paths to human-level and better AI. • There are also many paths to enhanced human intelligence, and smarter humans will have greater skills at designing smarter and more powerful computers. • AI offers fantastic profit opportunities to technology companies. "74 The market just for robots with human-level intelligence that could work as soldiers, farmers, housekeepers, sex companions, indus­ trial manufacturers, and care workers for the elderly would almost certainly exceed $1 trillion a year.
