I don't think anyone is currently capable of writing a sufficiently
complete, and sufficiently generic set of FAI Guidelines that would
apply to the class of AGI projects that people are attempting or might

I would be very interested in a discussion involving major theorists
as to how FAI safety theory affects the primary categories of AI
architectures, and goal systems. A set of living documentation which
details 'best known, or best projected practices' recommended for
current AI researchers would be a very useful centrepoint for
discussing FAI in general as well.

Concreteness can only help us in at least defining the major problems
and concerns.
