Summary

A recently published open letter is calling for a halt in the training of AI systems more powerful than GPT-4 for at least six months. However, some experts argue that this letter doesn't go far enough in addressing the potential risks and ethical concerns associated with artificial intelligence. They believe that a temporary pause is not sufficient and that a more comprehensive approach is needed to ensure the responsible development and deployment of AI. These experts emphasize the importance of considering the long-term consequences and potential harms of AI technology.

  • probably not having AI systems composed of giant inscrutable arrays of fractional numbers.
  • This is not how the CEO of Microsoft talks in a sane world. It shows an overwhelming gap between how seriously we are taking the problem, and how seriously we needed to take the problem starting 30 years ago.
  • I would immediately jettison that proposal and say to just shut it all down.
  • Shut down all the large GPU clusters
