This is a kind of biological and philosophical question. So, the recent concern in AI is that an AI agent may go rogue with prominent people voicing their concerns.
Now say, we have created an AI (you are free to use your own definition of what makes an AI intelligent) which has gone rogue with powers given in this question.
Now, the broad view of today's biology is that everything we do is to further our genes down the future (leaving aside small technical details). It is even widely accepted that we are just machines whose controller are the genes. Everything we do is controlled/hardwired by the genes with some avenue of learning from experiences. Also genes only further their own interest. Scientist George Price even wrote a mathematical equation proving all our acts are selfish and only furthering the interest of our genes (article). Also Richard Dawkins is a pioneer of this idea (this is only to show I haven't pulled the idea out from air).
Now, my question is that what will possibly be the motivation of an AI agent to go rogue? It doesn't have genes whose interest it needs to further. We all do something for an end result. What is the end result a rogue AI might try to achieve/attain and why?
