How might AGI kill people?
- What are concrete plausible stories for how an AI takes over the world? (edit question) (write answer)
If we pose a serious threat, it could hack our weapons systems and turn them against us. Future militaries are much more vulnerable to this due to rapidly progressing autonomous weapons. There’s also the option of creating bioweapons and distributing them to the most unstable groups you can find, tricking nations into WW3, or dozens of other things an agent many times smarter than any human with the ability to develop arbitrary technology, hack things (including communications), and manipulate people, or many other possibilities that something smarter than a human could think up. More can be found here.
If we are not a threat, in the course of pursuing its goals it may consume vital resources that humans need (e.g. using land for solar panels instead of farm crops). See this video for more details.
