"From the Ted Talk by Sam Harris: Can we build AI without losing control over it?"

#### Unscramble the Blue Letters

Now, just consider the smartest person who has ever lived. On almost everyone's shortlist here is John von Neumann. I mean, the ieiopsmsrn that von nuemnan made on the people around him, and this included the greatest mathematicians and physicists of his time, is fairly well-documented. If only half the stories about him are half true, there's no question he's one of the smartest people who has ever lvied. So consider the spectrum of intelligence. Here we have John von Neumann. And then we have you and me. And then we have a chicken.

#### Open Cloze
