You last statement is debatable. I'm currently working on a paper (which I'll
present later on completion), which discusses the distinct possibility of
creating collaborative transhuman networks capable of insulating/immunizing
themselves against possible malign super-AI long enough to develop and aquire
access to nanotechnology that is sufficient to upload and/or enhance our
neural-nets to compete on a level playing field with said AI's. (boy, that was
a mouthful!).
