Accelerating the efficiency of an optimization algorithm doesn't get you AGI, this should be clear by now. As for fielding such systems, one quick way to destroy humanity to a degree is to turn everything into a glorified optimization problem which will no doubt be turned against people to maximize profit.

If you'll accelerate AIXI (optimization algorithm) [0], you'll get (real-time) AGI.

If only this wasn't an fundamentally flawed theory that isn't scalable based on computational complexity and information theory.

Approximations to AIXI are computable.
