Practical Typography is really good.
The Economist’s May 9th cover story is on the long-term future of AI: short bit, long bit. The longer piece basically just reviews the state of AI and then says that there’s no existential threat in the near term. But of course almost everyone writing about AI risk agrees with that. Sigh.
6-minute video documentary about industrial robots replacing workers in China.
Bostrom’s TED talk on machine superintelligence.
PBS YouTube series It’s Okay to Be Smart gets AI risk basically right, though it overstates the probability of hard takeoff.
Sam Harris says more (wait ~20s for it to load) about the future of AI, on The Joe Rogan Experience. I think he significantly overstates how quickly AGI could be built (10 years is pretty inconceivable to me), and his “20,000 years of intellectual progress in a week” metaphor is misleading (because lots of intellectual progress requires relatively slow experimental interaction with the world). But I think he’s right about much else in the discussion.
