How do we motivate a superintelligent artificial intelligence to share our values?

Very good point! My guess is anyhow that I will still be around when machines get self-aware - and possibly that this will happen sooner than most of would expect.

“ ´Since our research is free from financial obligations, we can better focus on a positive human impact.´
Implicit in this: You can do more good operating outside the bounds of capitalism than within them."
It’s interesting that a bunch of self-made billionaires don’t seem to trust the capitalist system.

Story
Tagline
Biodiversity informatics, ecology and agrodiversity
Introduction
After growing up in Arendal, Norway I was a student at NTNU in Trondheim, Norway (1991-1996). After my military service in the navy during 1997, I moved to Oslo, Norway for part-time database studies while working for IBM with mainframe computer networks. In 1999 I moved to Malmö in Sweden to work at the Nordic Gene Bank in Alnarp (1999-2011). NGB was reorganized as the Nordic Genetic Resources Center in 2008. I spent one year in Rome, Italy 2005/2006 working for the International Plant Genetic Resources Institute (now Bioversity International). Return back to Sweden and Lund starting a PhD project at Copenhagen University, Faculty for Life Sciences, Institute for Agriculture and Ecology, Crop Science section. The PhD thesis is available online at http://goo.gl/pYa9x (PDF, 38 MByte), ISBN: 978-91-628-8268-6. In 2011 I joined the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF, http://www.gbif.org) as Knowledge System Engineer. In the autumn of 2012 I became the GBIF Node Manager for Norway and relocated to Oslo.
