THE IRONY OF RELATIVE INTELLIGENCE

3 min readJan 6, 2024

Are we humans intelligent enough to create machines that are more intelligent than we are? Yes. Are we sufficiently intelligent to see and appreciate the consequences of this act? Probably not.

If we ask our smart machines that question do they answer honestly, or in a self serving way? How do we know? Can an artificially intelligent machine act in a “self-serving” manner?

Some speculate that if not yet, the time will come when these AI machines gain self awareness, and become self motivated.
