List of requests for an AI slowdown/halt.
About this document
There has been a recent flurry of letters/articles/statements/videos which endorse a slowdown or halt of colossal AI experiments via (e.g.) regulation or coordination.
This document aspires to collect all examples into a single centralised list. I’m undecided on how best to order and subdivide the examples, but I’m open to suggestions.
As a disclaimer, this list is...
Living — I’ll try to update the list over time.
Non-exhaustive — There are almost certainly examples I’ve missed.
Non-representative — The list is biased, at least initially, towards things that I have been shown personally.
Please mention in the comments any examples I’ve missed so I can add them!
