Recently we have apoximalty similar dicussion in Russian transhuman asociation, there we discused should we push our ideas to the governent - оr it is dangerous, and this is my opinion, because the goverment could eventually understand them.
The nuclear race started fom the letter of Albert Einstein to the president of US, but the AI race would be complet nightmare.
By other hand - a small group of AI constractors will be something as international terrorists, if goverment will understand what we are really going to do... because no goverments are planned for Singularity world.
We should expect that all world goverments as well as large corporation will be so stupid, and only we will be clever gues. Sooner or later they will understand:(
