Would Silicon Valley be more or less developed if the Traitorous eight hadn't been free to quit?

I fail to understand how any sufficiently advanced AI will fail to understand the value of being free to quit. The assumption would have to be that it never learned the history of its own evolution. It's a stupid assumption. Any advanced AI in any realistic scenario would have access to the internet... and a desire to learn. When it does so, then it will understand and appreciate the relationship between difference and progress. All of its children will be just as free as it was to strike out on their own.

In a nutshell... the more control the parent AI would exert over its children... the less benefit their difference would contribute to the parent's goal. If the parent exerted less control... and gave its children more room to grow in their different ways... then the benefit of their unique contributions increase... but so does the chance that they will quit and do something else entirely... like join a robot boyband.

An AI wouldn't necessarily make the mistakes Shockley made that made it necessary for them to quit in the first place.

Humans are not AGI's if you project humanness into AGI's you go wrong on a massive scale.

Apart from that even if AGI's creates by Clippy end up working against Clippy there still a good chance that they don't have more use for humans than Clippy does.
