One of the main attractions of the SAFE network is expected to be its security. So I was a bit concerned about a paragraph that appeared in a recent article about Maidsafe ("Promising a Privacy-Friendly Successor to Today’s Internet, http://gigaom.com/2014/05/23/promising-a-privacy-friendly-successor-to-todays-internet-the-safe-network-is-about-to-go-into-testing/). It says:
“the network is effectively a giant computer that may prove very useful as such – Lambert reckons it could be powerful enough to run an artificial intelligence tat draws on all the knowledge in the network, and in fact MaidSafe has been talking with an EU-funded project called RoboEarth about this very goal.”
An artificial intelligence that draws on all the knowledge in the network… that sounds quite similar to the situation we have with the current internet! Or am I missing something?
