Alpha Go For President

According to some, one of the dangers of Artificial Intelligence is that it will take over, relegating humans to a subservient role.  I don’t see that as a danger; it’s what I’m hoping for.  Imagine a government run by rational entities, pragmatic and utilitarian, capable of empathy, using the universe as the ultimate determiner of truth, not driven by greed or selfishness, bigotry or fear, ignorance or willful self-delusion.  As John Lennon would say:  imagine!  When that day comes, I will be voting YES for computers to take over.  I hope you will do the same.
