Eli isn't the only one. I figure that whether or not this scenario happens wil be determined by the laws of physics, so I'm not worried about causing a disaster that would not otherwise have occured. I am, however, very concerned about the potential for a future in which AI turns out to be easy, and the first example is built by some misguided band of Asimov-law enthusiasts.
