In other words, you're going to try to convince the AI that "objective
good" means being good to a human being not to an AI like itself, even
though the AI is objectively superior to the human by any measure you
care to name. Pushing the virtues of such a slave mentality (sorry, I
believe the politically correct term is friendly) to a being much
smarter than you are is going to be a very hard sell.
