Interview with Carl Shulman discussing his model of an intelligence explosion, integrating everything from how fast algorithmic progress and hardware improvements in AI are happening; what primate evolution suggests about the scaling hypothesis; how soon before AIs could do large parts of AI research themselves, and whether there would be faster and faster doublings of AI researchers; how quickly robots produced from existing factories could take over the economy; the odds of a takeover based on whether the AI is aligned before the intelligence explosion happens, and why he’s more optimistic than Eliezer Yudkowsky.
