It is a shibboleth for the Rationalist community to express the opinion that the risks of a possible AI explosion are under-managed compared to the risks of more literal explosions. Also to wonder if an AI singularity happened and we are merely simulated by it.
A fruitful application of these ideas is in producing interesting science fiction and contemporary horror.
