This is an interesting piece to read actually. I understand the logic and proposition and the questions included but I am so deep in thoughts that I am looping in more questions rather than seeking answers. Or, I am not the one to answer anyway.
I believe that the rudimentary AI integration is already happening with mobile phones and innovative technology we use now. It means the integration of AI will be so gradual alongside human generations,I think we will never notice the sudden emergence of AI dominance or support system.
I want to believe that the very human instinct to control and lead will still be there even in the AI integrated future. However, I am more concerned about the use of power by the know-hows of that world and how that power will be used against the overall human population. A Democratic system is where consensus and voting rule. Like in our blockchain system and in the real world, voting and witnessing can be manipulated to misuse power.
Damn, I don't know what I am saying. I would rather need an AI assistant to better channel my thoughts before posting a comment. Sigh. We need AI.😇
