Has Hawking not heard of Friendly AI? Strong AI is ridiculously dangerous if you don't give it a proper goal system. It will be invented sooner or later, assuming humanity doesn't destroy itself first. Therefore, we're better off trying to find ways to make it friendly, rather than trying to stop its development.

Comment: Distributed everything (Score 1) 269

For every website where users can upload data, it needs to be distributed.

Slashdot, Github, Google*, all the forums, large and small, you name it.

They're all controlled by relatively few people, and subject to censorship, hardware failure and human madness.

Upside of the centralized system is (usually) fast speeds and comparatively easy maintenance and development.
