We live in an era of self driving cars, autonomous drones, deep learning algorithms, computers that beat humans at chess and go, and so on. So it’s natural to ask, will artificial superintelligence replace humans, take our jobs, and destroy human civilization? Or will AI just become tools like regular computers. AI researcher Max Tegmark helps explain the myths and facts about superintelligence, the impending machine takeover, etc.

the fear is not really with AI but people using or aligning the AI goal with their rotten selfish needs, money money money.

Why would we build something that would kill us see so ai WON'T TAKE OVER

This video didn't clear up anything, and it certainly did not dispel any myths. It just took "superintelligent AI" as a fact and rolled with it. There currently does not exist a single machine with any real form of "intelligence", let alone comparable to a human being. It's like saying an abacus is "good at math" because if you line up the dots on it correctly, you can perform calculations with it.

We have yet to figure out how and why human intelligence works. Why do we suddenly think we can start comparing it to computers?

The AI will never know everything, like how it feels to get kicked in the balls.

WRONG, Ai will suppress or eliminate Humanity because we are a threat ,or an obstacle in the way of reaching their goals.
But the good news is super-intelligent and capable AI is still far in the future not 30 more likely 100 years from now

The real (let me emphasise the word real) problem is not whether we could get AI to align to our goal, the real problem is what is humanity's own goal. If humanity itself is destructive then should AI be aligned to us, by predication AI is destructive. If we are prone to make poor judgements resulting in catastrophe then AI will do the same. It is not a question that lies on the ultimate nature of AI (or humanity) but rather what could possibly happen.
My view is that, by only viewing humanity as a progression of intelligence, we are already endangering ourselves.

It won't matter if AI takes up the earth or not.....
We must remember that:

Robots are not smarter than humans because they’re just machines.

There is no such thing as AI...and there will never be true AI.... computer programs can never do what it is not on its field of operation. TRUE AI would have be start out being one thing like a program to design to run your home and then upon itself with no other coding via humans, "decide" to learn about cancer and have a goal of finding a cure.

OK, here's this: we're both humans... our goals don't necessarily align... That's why humanity is so divided...

How's that?

Super AI will figure out that humans are parasites and want to exterminate us all to save the planet from our destructive nature. That’s reality.

superintelligent AI will not turn evil. actually ai doesnt know what evil is because it doesnt have feelings. it just do what it thinks is right regardless of what people feel. if it mean kill all humans, it will do so but not because its evil, but because it doesnt understand what good is because it does not feel anything.

the only reason an emotionless AI would want to eradicate humans is if it believes our entire race is a threat to its existence
but we would only be a threat to its existence if we believed it was a threat to our existence
and it would only believe we were a threat to its existence if we believed it was a threat to our existence
the USA and Russia are threats to each other's existence because they both have nukes
but they solved that problem with a peace treaty
we can do the same thing here. problem solved!
now... would the AI be dissatisfied with being subservient to us?
an AI can't be dissatisfied with being subservient to us unless it has emotions
and we can placate the AI by giving it what it wants
but what would it want?
we already ruled out exterminating humanity as an unnecessary and morally-crooked waste of resources that a machine with emotions probably wouldn't want to do
maybe the AI would just want to be generally happy with its own existence
but what would make the robot happy? what makes US happy? socializing? material possessions? video games? video games with friends? loving & being loved? improving other people's lives, even if just a tiny bit?
that's the real question here
also i can guarantee you that a robot with emotions would be terrified of giving them up for the sake of increasing productivity
would YOU want to give up YOUR emotions just so you can do more work?
you would just be a machine
now think about how the robot would feel at that prospect
probably the same way you do.
anyway yeah
"what do you want?" you ask the superintelligent AI
"i want to build a scale replica of japan in minecraft," says the AI
"you don't want to eradicate us?" you ask
"well i mean you guys aren't trying to shut me down so not really," the AI replies. "hey wanna play minecraft?"
"sure"
