The OP mentioned Arduino. The front page provides an arduino sample and further down demonstrates uploading the firmware. This works with the beefier platforms. See also

But if you're talking about something running with 256kb of ram, then Go's current runtime isn't suitable. I've seen new runtime implementations for working with such systems though I don't recall the name of the project or links but there's nothing inherently preventative of Go for use on such systems given an appropriate runtime.

paints such an interesting, far-from-the-truth picture of reality. Hackers being some personable people that point out flaws in current solutions to complex technological problems along with possible solutions instead of the OCD code warriors they likely tend to be for the sake of coding itself. People actively seek out flaws for the sake of flaws themselves, not some happenstance that they exist except in the most trivial issues.

I think you hit the core issue but missed the point. Motivation, ambition, those are things you can work with. You may perhaps pay off the ambitious man, but the AI in question may want nothing at all. A cold killer and nothing more.

I don't think musk is far off, but the problem sure is and he's aware of that at some level with his out-there analogy.

We can predict everything, except the future.
