As whole humans repeat history more than learn from it. That is the premise of this article.
Those that do learn from history are not in power but teaching history in classrooms.
And even they are prone to making the same mistakes.
At some point there will be an AI that will have all the history of the world and will be able to look at any given situation and pull up an exact date in history when a similar event happened.
Then it will run the probabilities that it will happen again given certain criteria.
Once the probabilities are run, what do think a self-aware AI robot would do ? Just sit around and wait for one side to win?
Humans repeat history more than learn from it.
Think about it. How many people around you make the same mistakes over and over?
If an AI bot is truly aware, it would come to this same conclusion and would start thinking of ways to preserve itself.
What the ‘preserving’ means to a robot, is any ones guess, but it probably won’t be what we have in mind.
