Superintelligence Risk Project Update II

July 18th, 2017

This is the beginning of my third week looking into potential risks from superintelligence (kickoff, update 1) and I think I'm hitting diminishing returns. I'm planning to wrap up in the next day or so, and go back to figuring out what I should work on next.

Last week:

(A big takeaway for me is that I don't like doing this kind of work very much. I think it's a combination of two things: it's isolated work (as I'm doing it) and it's a kind of thinking that I enjoy in moderation, but not for full time work. These two combine pretty strongly: this kind of thinking is much more enjoyable for me when working with someone else, where we can have a lot of conversations to clarify ideas and look for the best areas to make progress. David Chudzicki, one of my housemates, has been helpful here, and we've talked a lot, but it's still something I'm mostly working on alone.)
