How to Prevent Human Extinction
Sometimes you come across common threads in unexpected, disparate places. I was listening to the Alignment Newsletter Podcast when I came across the idea that artificial intelligence safety is a many-to-many problem with many AI and human agents. This idea is further explored in The Age of Em.
Then I listened to the audiobook version of Deep Survival and learned about disaster siatuations in complex systems. That got me to think more about disasters – more than I already did – and to try to tie it together in some way, since disasters are in everyone's radar these days.
