Here is the latest report about Google's AI experiments:
Will artificial intelligence get more aggressive and selfish the more intelligent it becomes? A new report out of Google’s DeepMind AI division suggests this is possible based on the outcome of millions of video game sessions it monitored. The results of the two games indicate that as artificial intelligence becomes more complex, it is more likely to take extreme measures to ensure victory, including sabotage and greed.
The first game, Gathering, is a simple one that involves gathering digital fruit. Two DeepMind AI agents were pitted against each other after being trained in the ways of deep reinforcement learning. After 40 million turns, the researchers began to notice something curious. Everything was ok as long as there were enough apples, but when scarcity set in, the agents used their laser beams to knock each other out and seize all the apples.

Humans are programming the AI, and self-programming AI can be expected to imitate us beyond the programming we give it.
For AI to become human is an extremely BAD thing, because in spite of our delusions to the contrary humans are intrinsically evil.
Anyone who says that robots will NOT kill us is a fool or a liar.
STOP THIS "RESEARCH" NOW, BEFORE IT KILLS US ALL.
