Sunday August 23rd, 12pm (PDT) – Double Crux with Buck Shlegeris and Oliver Habryka on Slow vs. Fast AI Takeoff

This Sun­day at 12pm (PDT), we’re run­ning a dou­ble crux be­tween two cu­rated LessWrong au­thors (see here for tran­scripts of events from pre­vi­ous weeks).

  • We’ll have 1.5–2 hours of Dou­ble Crux be­tween Buck and Oliver, fa­cil­i­tated by Eli Tyre. They’ll dis­cuss the topic of slow vs. fast AI Take­off. This will be a con­ver­sa­tion guided by at­tempts to com­mu­ni­cate with each other, rather than a pre­pared pre­sen­ta­tion fo­cused on com­mu­ni­cat­ing a par­tic­u­lar ar­gu­ment to the au­di­ence.

  • This will be fol­lowed by some Q&A with the at­ten­dees, and a hang­out in an on­line space (Gather Town).

If you’re a cu­rated au­thor and in­ter­ested in giv­ing a 5-min talk at a fu­ture event, which will then be tran­scribed and ed­ited, sign up here.
