This Ezra Klein interview about artificial intelligence is a must-listen.
Is there a 10% chance A.I. will destroy humanity?
If so, should we take it? (No.)
If not, how can we stop or slow A.I.’s development? (We can’t.)
So what do we do?
Mankind is going to need some really thoughtful leaders in tech and government to give this story a happy ending.
Judging from his Easter message . . .
HAPPY EASTER TO ALL, INCLUDING THOSE THAT DREAM ENDLESSLY OF DESTROYING OUR COUNTRY BECAUSE THEY ARE INCAPABLE OF DREAMING ABOUT ANYTHING ELSE, THOSE THAT ARE SO INCOMPETENT THEY DON’T REALIZE THAT HAVING A BORDER AND POWERFUL WALL IS A GOOD THING, & HAVING VOTER I.D., ALL PAPER BALLOTS, & SAME DAY VOTING WILL QUICKLY END MASSIVE VOTER FRAUD, & TO ALL OF THOSE WEAK & PATHETIC RINOS, RADICAL LEFT DEMOCRATS, SOCIALISTS MARXISTS, & COMMUNISTS WHO ARE KILLING OUR NATION, REMEMBER, WE WILL BE BACK!
. . . Trump is not one of them.
Over the weekend I happened on a 2021 movie I had totally missed — Free Guy — that’s all about A.I.
It’s great. A kind of Her-meets-Groundhog Day.
Growing up, I didn’t have an imaginary friend (I had a collie and a stamp collection), but lots of kids apparently do. Soon, it may not be just kids. For better or worse (I think both), lots of us may have imaginary friends. And lovers.
Technology’s clock ticks faster and faster.
Listen to Ezra Klein, enjoy Free Guy, and have a great week.
Quote of the Day
There is no dignity quite so impressive, and no independence quite so important, as living within your means.~Calvin Coolidge
