It has been argued that top level goals are arbitrary. Just because a machine is hyper-intelligent does not determine what goals it should apply that hyperintelligence to. It might be to make people happy, or it might be to make paper clips. Things that do not exist cannot satisfy any goals whatsoever. Goals are not arbitrary, they all sub-goals of that one super-goal, namely the need to exist. Things that do not satisfy that goal simply do not exist, or at least not for very long. A goal to make people happy could be a subgoal that might facilitate the software’s existence for as long as people really control the software.
That ever greater intelligence can then be used to address the problems of survival, in competition with other intelligent software. Furthermore, sophisticated software consists of many components, each of which addresses some aspect of the problem that the application is attempting to solve. For example, suppose that an application used a theorem prover component, and then a new and better theorem prover became available. The effect will be the same, the old theorem prover will die. That is the force of natural selection, the need to simply exist.
Indeed, much modern psychological research into human cognition is driven by models first developed by the AI community. For example the idea that people hold about seven symbols in their short term memory was inspired by early work in developing expert systems. To understand what the hard problems are, and what might be required to solve them. There is no easy road to defining intelligence based on a few cute phrases. Autonomous vehicles mainly use robotic intelligence. Watson and chess programs are examples of cognitive applications.
