And once upon a time a useful computer would never fit in an average person's home. Ignoring all the other ways your store -everything idea wouldn't be effective, the cost of compute and efficiency of these models is changing so fast that by the time your idea was implemented, it would already be obsolete.

Interesting question. I think this would require us to understand the nature of pain. At the end of the day, brain or machine AI, it all boils down to data. What data and processes produce "pain" and why? Is pain an inherent part of intelligence and learning?

Fake how? The experience is real, and as far as I'm concerned that's all that matters.

Who made you the moral arbiter of mankind? Your values are not everyone else's values, stop trying to force them on people.

I don't think this is entirely true. Nobody can guarantee anything, sure, but OpenAI for example seems pretty confident they know where to put their efforts. Given their track record and explanations of their intuition, I believe them.
