At Microsoft's big event in Stockholm, I had the opportunity to debate the AI pause, six months after it was proposed. I was against the pause, and instead wrote my own letter: Pause AI Doomster Pessimism.
We call on all AI doomsters to immediately pause for at least 6 months the alarmism that is hurting human progress.
Christian Landgren held the opposing view. He signed the letter, but is not one of the AI doomsters, so I thought we had a pretty good discussion.
I expanded my view a bit in this update:
Thank you to Microsoft for inviting us!
