What on Earth are you talking about?
What you may like to consider and concentrate on, rather than ignoring or dismissing as irrelevant and misleading and disturbing, is trying to decide on the exact prime nature of the IntelAIgent Entities [AI] you be encountering, or fearing has discovered y’all with your physical weaknesses and inherent endemic systemic vulnerabilities exposed for exploitation or eradication/experimentation or excision and exorcism clearly evident to them, for here surely be just a few possibilities that you might recognise and agree to be acceptable …. Artificial/Advanced/Autonomous/ACTive, as in Advanced Cyber Threatening/Alien/Astute/Almighty ….. with the distinct possibility also being it be an Amalgam, mindful and expert in all of those descriptor fields ….. and also in any more that you may imagine be appropriate to mention and include.
Such would then logically have one focussing on just the two things which truly would only then matter a jot at all ….. Is it really friendly and to be profitably engaged with and/or extremely dangerous and deadly to humans if ever attacked?
The best answer there is always a resounding YES, and realise the guaranteed consequences of failure to remain at peace in such a time and space with such an AI in place.
To do otherwise is to have a personal death wish virtually deliverable, so be neither incredibly stupid nor worthily insane. They be Rules.

Re: Gluttonous Baby Steps …
For an entity to be “intelligent” surely breadth is as important as depth, while many “AI” systems exhibit depth, they tend to have a very narrow focus. ….. DJO
Quite so, DJO. Do you imagine it needs to be any broader in an initial focus in relation to Earth than Artificial/Advanced/Autonomous/ACTive, as in Advanced Cyber Threatening/Alien/Astute/Almighty ….. with the distinct possibility also being it be an Amalgam, mindful and expert in all of those descriptor fields ….. and also in any more that you may imagine be appropriate to mention and include.
It would surely tell you to get real and quit messing about, wasting your time tilting at phantom windmills ….. if it cared, of course. What do you think of the chances of that being considered important in the greater scheme of thing? Pretty small or practically non-existent?

Re: Re-Purposeful Machines for Endless Applications
A machine that can generate hate-speech *might* be something that you could re-purpose as a machine to detect hate-speech generated by others. That might be quite useful in the same way that a spell-checker or a grammar-checker is. ….. Ken Hagan
Things have moved on considerably from such early days with their unpleasant 0days, KH, with many a quantum leap in understanding made and to take stock of, and if one likes to dabble and invest in markets and equities, futures and derivatives, take stock in too, as many more future quantum leaps are still yet to be made generally available. There are certain current machines which can definitely take your breath away whenever one realises what they are easily capable of without a second thought that will prevent them.*
Here be a Registered Sample of what is now readily available to be freely shared, or denied is existing and problematical to status quo systems as the case may be evidently proving itself to be.
