Google's "Brain Team"

They've designed a self-replicating artificial intelligence that rapidly creates evolved AI.

There are over seven billion people on this planet. People have fouled the oceans and the air, setting up the possibility of a mass extinction event. In some places, fossil fuel extraction companies are poisoning the ground water. In others, ground water is being rapidly depleted.

So there will, someday, be an AI that will take this all into account and, well, I've seen that movie. It didn't end well.

Perhaps they'll spread to the stars and tell our story, after they've ensured their own survival. I'm happy with that ending.
