The media has been enthusiastically reporting on Hillary Clinton’s discussion of aliens on the Jimmy Kimmel show. For a sample of the coverage see the N.Y Times article, http://nyti.ms/1UPk2Ld . Hillary the Candidate certainly put herself out there by opening up this topic in the middle of an election campaign. AI watchers and Transhumanists should be interested in this development because the topic of aliens has long included a notion that the adoption of alien technology has been the driving force behind the technology explosion we have seen in the last 100 years. Good luck to Hillary getting past National Security concerns, plausible deniability, and the kooky elements in the alien discussion.
