  • Aeon: Why has human progress slowed?
  • Gary Marcus on the future of AI (EconTalk). Kind of weird that Russ & Gary wonder why there’d be a risk from general AI, but then don’t mention┬áthe standard “risk via convergent instrumental goals” argument.
  • NYT reports on a Horvitz-funded 100-year Stanford program studying social impacts of AI. The white paper makes clear that┬áthe superintelligence control problem is among the intended focus areas!
