🤖 Pause AI Doomster Pessimism
Today, we are publishing an open letter in response to the open letter that proposed an AI pause.
We suggest a different pause: A pause for doomsday thinking about AI.
Instead, all AI pessimists should spend six months reflecting on the benefits of AI. We list five areas in the letter, such as climate change and education.
The point is not to ignore problems and potential dangers with AI, but to bring balance to the discussion.
It now revolves around far-reaching theories of humanity's downfall. This needs to be balanced against all the benefits we have gained and will gain thanks to AI.
🌞 Climate optimism at Stockholm Climate Week
Warp News is a partner to We Don't Have Time during Stockholm Climate Week, and yesterday I gave a short speech on climate optimism.
Many people say that "nothing happens" in fixing climate change. But that is wrong. There is a lot going on, but many projects and companies are new and have not come so far, so it is barely noticeable.
When a tsunami wave is out at sea, it looks like any other wave. When it comes to shore, it is enormous. That's how it is with climate solutions.
