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.

that reads more like a statement rather than a question. Regardless of location source, whether google sanctioned or not, and if one has decided to install things from places other than google (arguably the 3rd party check box is the type of thing that makes android a google project versus pure OSS, or in the same respects is what differentiates chrome from chromium), etc, etc, when you install an application, you will be prompted. This prompt shares similarity with, for example, running a downloaded executable on windows and being prompted before actually running.

Having 3rd party sources disabled is not a safety net for avoiding issues, that's simply what makes android a google product.

After an instrument has been assembled, extra components will be found on the bench.
