About this Episode

Some people think that advanced AI is going to kill everyone. Some people don't. Who to believe? Fortunately, Ben and Vaden are here to sort out the question once and for all. No need to think for yourselves after listening to this one, we've got you covered.

We discuss:

  • How well does math fit reality? Is that surprising?
  • Should artificial general intelligence (AGI) be considered "a person"?
  • How could AI possibly "go rogue?"
  • Can we know if current AI systems are being creative?
  • Is misplaced AI fear hampering progress?
