An AI is trying to take over the world, but it can only use the information stored on your computer(s), phone, etc. How far does it get?

Mine gets lost in weird code and eventually ends up constantly rewriting all its plans to take such weirdness into account, which then causes the plans to fail because most people aren't as weird as me.

@alexbuzzbee Mine reads a couple of papers on machine learning algorithms, creates a giant puzzle a la Sokoban, Myst, and Monkey Island, and puts the whole humanity in it.

Of course there is a way to solve the puzzle and stop Matrix-like enslavement of the whole humanity. In that case the AI will go "fair enough", and then backup and delete itself.
