Thinking in advance about the last algorithm we ever need to invent
Paper in proceedings, 2018

We survey current discussions about possibilities and risks associated with an artificial intelligence breakthrough on the level that puts humanity in the situation where we are no longer foremost on the planet in terms of general intelligence. The importance of thinking in advance about such an event is emphasized. Key issues include when and how suddenly superintelligence is likely to emerge, the goals and motivations of a superintelligent machine, and what we can do to improve the chances of a favorable outcome.
