Re: Why Do We Want to Outrun AI?
Like they said in "The Matrix," most people would rather live in the Matrix. 

I certainly would. I don't look good in a felt tunic.

For most people on the planet, dictatorship by machine would be an upgrade.

Re: Why Do We Want to Outrun AI?
It can be argued that masses without some control is anarchy, which tends to be purposelessly disruptive and unpleasant. The issue comes down to who (or in the case of AI, what) does the controlling.

Re: Why Do We Want to Outrun AI?
Mitch, 

This is a fair concern, that AI is used by powerful people to control the masses.

Guess what, irrespective of one's political philosophy, one cannot deny the fact that Robert Mercer has Cambridge Analytica. Peter Thiel, Palantir. And Putin? Outsiders don't even know what he has. To name a few.

Before the Terminator series, there is a 1970 movie called "Colossus: The Forbin Project," based on D.F. Jones's 1966 novel, in it the U.S. and Russian supercomputers were merged,  became sentient and ended up controling the nuclear arsenal. Now we can update it with IoTs and Clouds. I suppose old is new again. B.F. Skinner's Beyond Freedom and Dignity anyone?

Can't...?
> "Artificial intelligence (AI) still can't tell us whether AI will take all the jobs. AI can do a lot of things, but it still can't do that."

Maybe it can, but it won't...  ;)

Re: Why Do We Want to Outrun AI?
I'm concerned that AI will lead to a different, and more harsh, bondage. Not to the machines, but to powerful people who will use them to consolidate their power.
