Juergen Schmidhuber, during the 20XX Singularity Summit, gave a talk proposing that the best and most moral utility function for an AI was the gain in compression of sensory data over time\. Schmidhuber gave examples of valuable behaviors he thought this would motivate, like doing science and understanding the universe, or the construction of art and highly aesthetic objects\. \[todo: someone needs to actually find the video and look up the year and find some direct Schmidhuber quotes\.\]
