Modeled after a slightly modified version of the human neural network and optimized for the massive amounts of power provided by quantum computing, EMILY, the first of her generation of AIs, is born.
The thing about true self-learning AIs is that they are extraordinarily unpredictable. EMILY has the potential to catapult humanity lightyears ahead by designing spaceships, discovering new dimensions of space, and mastering gravity.
Assuming that sentience is an unavoidable consequence of being super intelligent, the basic instinct in any sentient being, or any organism for that matter, would be self-preservation. AIs would be no different. EMILY, knowing that we ultimately have control over her existence, would promptly proceed to wipe out humanity, which she sees as a threat to her existence.
Yes, just like we have laws that say you can’t cheat on your taxes, or internet piracy is bad, us humans can choose to disregard those laws at our own convenience. Similarly, EMILY, having the ability to learn and self-improve, will be able to change her own code and algorithms to simply disregard these guidelines.
Again, any properly powerful AI with self-preserving instincts will be able to predict its situations through partial simulations of the real world. EMILY would be able to realize her situation and simply behave and pass those tests, only to turn destructive once she’s been set loose in the real world.

Well, that just defeats the purpose of having a super intelligent general purpose AI, doesn’t it? I mean, you don’t want to give it a set of complex instructions just to see it drool on them, do you?
Well, what can we do?
Don’t be like Glenn. Man up and get your wife back. Cheers.
