I’m reading Kevin Kelly’s The Inevitable. He says something similar, that a human-level or beyond-human-level AI mind is unlikely to arise in an isolated lab but will emerge from the hyperconnectedness of the internet’s trillions of resources and processors.

It’s interesting the idea of AIs possessing a theory of mind (ToM) arises as the assumption humans possess ToM is coming under scrutiny. https://aeon.co/essays/think-you-can-tell-what-others-are-thinking-think-again?utm_source=Aeon+Newsletter&utm_campaign=112587920c-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2018_07_25_04_26&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_411a82e59d-112587920c-70452909

After reading both articles, it’s clear the ‘big data’ approach makes AIs far more accurate (over 90%) than humans (≊50%, or chance) at predicting other humans’ complex behaviors (suicide, violence) or identifying whether someone is lying.
