So the "VR" for the AI is not the same as "VR" for us.
It's "Virtual Binary" or whatever. Interesting.

But I see a problem.

For example, we create an advanced AI to control the
ship for decisions that need to be made too quickly
for us to do.  In order to provide a "buffer zone",
the AI manipulates virtual controls for the ship instead
of real ones.  If we approve of the manipulation, we
do it to the ship.  The problem is that this requires
a human "in-the-loop", and we wind up defeating the
purpose that we even have an AI for.
