I can’t say I am one, but I am currently working on research and prototyping and will probably refrain to that until I can prove some of my hypotheses, since I do have access to the tools I need at the moment. Still, I didn’t want this post to only have relevance to my case, as I stated I don’t think probability of successs is meaningful. But I am interested in the opinions of the community related to other similar cases.edit: It’s kinda hard to answer your comment since it keeps changing every time I refresh. By “can’t say I am one” I mean a “world-class engineer” in the original comment. I do appreciate the change of tone in the final (?) version, though :)
I could recommend Robert Miles channel. While not a course per se, it gives good info on a lot of AI safety aspects, as far as I can tell.
Thanks for your work! I’ll be following it.
I really don’t get how you can go from being online to having a ball of nanomachines, truly.Imagine AI goes rogue today. I can’t imagine one plausible scenario where it can take out humanity without triggering any bells on the way, even without anyone paying attention to such things.But we should pay attention to the bells, and for that we need to think of them. What the signs might look like?I think it’s really, really counterproductive to not take that into account at all and thinking all is lost if it fooms. It’s not lost.It will need humans, infrastructure, money (which is very controllable) to accomplish its goals. Governments already pay a lot of attention to their adversaries who are trying to do similar things and counteract them semi-successfully. Any reason why they can’t do the same to a very intelligent AI?Mind you, if your answer is to simulate and just do what it takes, true to life simulations will take a lot of compute and time; that won’t be available from the start. We should stop thinking of rogue AI as God, it would only help it accomplish it’s goals.
I agree, since it’s hard to imagine for me how could step 2 look like. Maybe you or anyone else has any content on that?See this post—it didn’t seem to get a lot of traction or any meaningful answers, but I still think this question is worth answering.
Both are of interest to me.
Yep, but I was looking for anything else
Does that, in turn, mean that it’s probably a good investment to buy souls for 10 bucks a pop (or even more)?
I know, I’m Russian as well. The concern is exactly because Russian state-owned company plainly states they’re developing AGI with that name :p
Can you specify which AI company is searching for employees with a link?
Apparently, Sberbank (state-owned biggest russian bank) has a team literally called AGI team, that is primarily focused on NLP tasks (they made https://russiansuperglue.com/ benchmark), but still, the name concerns me greatly. You can’t find a lot about it on the web, but if you follow-up some of the team members, it checks out.
