The AI Dilemma

Tristan Harris and Aza Raskin present their findings and research into the state of AI, and what’s coming. Spoiler: It’s probably not very pretty 😬

Scary. Enlightening. Immensely important. Seriously, invest the time in seeing this.

Excerpt from the video description:

Tristan Harris and Aza Raskin discuss how existing A.I. capabilities already pose catastrophic risks to a functional society, how A.I. companies are caught in a race to deploy as quickly as possible without adequate safety measures, and what it would mean to upgrade our institutions to a post-A.I. world.

⚠️ Update 2023-04-26: Since posting, this presentation has been contested in several ways. See links in the notes below.

I’m bullish on AI, but super-nervous about it, too.

Reminds me of the Strauss-Howe generational theory, and makes me think 2023 is the fourth turning; ie. Crisis.
