Like crazy scientists? Obsessed with playing God? We've already seen a fair few of them, and they usually have some self defeating dynamic in their theories, (Like being batshit crazy too ahead of their time / morally repugnant)

Or maybe it will happen accidentally, I mean evolve spontaneously. I mean, it happened before, that spark of sentience, right? And we're still killing each other over differences of opinion as to who is right or wrong to blame for the event.
But saying that, I'm actually quite optimistic too, I'm just being an arsehole playing Devil's advocate for lulz.  :D

Can you name an AI researcher that was morally repugnant?

They seem to be mostly really nice, if a bit pedantic.

I was referring to crazy scientists in general, not specifically AI Researchers.

Not many of those outside sci fi.  Sadly.

You know what I heard?  That there are infinite universes and that they all have different cosmological constants.  And that most of them fail horribly.

If God is going to play science, turnabout's fair play.

You only hear that most of them fail horribly, from people with a vested interest in keeping us in this one. It's propaganda, from fundamentalist anti-multiversists.
They want us to stay with the "single universe" model for as long as possible, so they can milk all the lulz from us, and sell it as an addictive mind enhancing drug, in some mirthless universe somewhere else.
