I am curious if this has changed over the past 6 years since you posted this comment. Do you get the feeling that high profile researchers have shifted even further towards Xrisk concern, or if they continue with the same views as in 2016? Thanks!
There has been continued progress at about the rate I would’ve expected—maybe a bit faster. I think GPT-3 has helped change people’s views somewhat, as have further appreciation of other social issues of AI.
