Thanks for these, I'll add them.
Although without a sharp understanding of Evolution I think there is
little justification for statements like
"Self-improvement causes systems to allocate their physical and
computational resources according to a universal principle. It also causes
systems to exhibit four natural drives: 1) efficiency, 2)
resource acquisition, and 4) creativity."
He talks about deliberation vs Evolution (eg. when choosing a mate),
without realizing that deliberation comes from Evolution.
The paper is also a bit rambly and not sharp, IMHO.
I like the idea of split personalities. A possible source of goals.
"Self-improving systems do not yet exist". Of course they do -- from
the beginning. It is all a matter of extent. Even dumb chess
programs try to improve the "book" of openings etc. in their spare
time, thus improving themselves. Neural nets in Conway's life.

Just because it is possible to push twigs along the ground with ones nose
does not necessarily mean that is the best way to collect firewood.
