Adam D’Angelo on 2015

This AI Prediction was made by Adam D’Angelo in 2015.


Predicted time for AGI / HLMI / transformative AI:

(Hover for explanation)Types of advanced artificial intelligence: AGI (AI that can perform many tasks at a human-level), HLMI (more advanced AI that surpasses human intelligence in specific areas), and Transformative AI (AI that could significantly impact society and the world)

I think that is a risk too, but it is much further off



Opinion about the Intelligence Explosion from Adam D’Angelo:

Not provided


Flycer’s explanation for better understanding:

The article discusses the potential threat of artificial intelligence (AI) to humanity. It argues that while AI has the potential to greatly benefit society, it also poses a risk if it becomes too advanced and autonomous. The author suggests that it is important for society to carefully consider and regulate the development of AI to ensure that it remains beneficial and does not pose a threat to humanity.



The future of humanity with AGI / HLMI / transformative AI:

So, there is a risk that as AI gets better and better it at least destabilizes things.This is totally independent of concerns about AI “taking over” with its own “free will”.


Flycer’s Secondary Explanation:

As AI improves, there is a risk of destabilization. This risk is separate from concerns about AI taking over with its own free will.
