Default Re: could we create AI seed that can create more god like AIs

In the Transhuman Space setting, the intelligence of AIs is limited by the power of the computers they run on. "God like AIs" probably need IQs of 20+, and there's no established way in the setting, as of 2100, to build the computers to run them.

In my QRA campaign, there was an attempt to build a much smarter AI by combining human mind emulation with many xoxes of an emergent SAI. It was pretty smart, but vastly over-confident, and had almost no ability to anticipate the reasoning of lesser minds. It was shut down before it got very far, because the xoxing made it extremely illegal. Its plans to rule the Solar System were . . . not very good.
