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?


@alexbuzzbee Depending on how this is interpreted, either “nowhere”, “hardly anywhere” or “it takes over the world”:

• “Nowhere” if it is limited to my processor, and can't gain additional information by instructing my computer to look stuff up online.
• “Hardly anywhere” if it has supercomputer capabilities and can't get internet.
• “It takes over the world” if it has supercomputer plus internet, or hypercomputer without feedback from the internet (it just needs to AIXI in the latter case).
