Hi Luke, I could not post on intelligence.org without an account so if you don’t mind, I’ll post here instead:

Luke, it would be very interesting if you could comment on the deleted comment to the debate by Elon Musk: http://mashable.com/2014/11/17/elon-musk-singularity/
He is a very smart guy, has a sort of wired-in psychological trait of relentlessly pursuing the “truth” (EM: “… reason from first principles rather than by analogy”), have a great track record of delivering outlandish things (such as docking to the ISS) on promises and last but not least, he has direct insight to what is happening inside DeepMind and Vicarious.
His (deleted) comment is really the interesting thing in this debate due to his position, track record and very special personality.
Supposedly Elon will be writing a blog post on his views on that soon, so I’ll wait to comment until then.
