Moore’s Law for Everything

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, economics, law, policy, robotics/AI

Fascinating vision/plan by the one and only Sam Altman of how to update our economic systems to benefit everyone in the context of rapidly accelerating technological change.

My work at OpenAI reminds me every day about the magnitude of the socioeconomic change that is coming sooner than most people believe. Software that can think and learn will do more and more of the work that people now do. Even more power will shift from labor to capital. If public policy doesn’t adapt accordingly, most people will end up worse off than they are today.

We need to design a system that embraces this technological future and taxes the assets that will make up most of the value in that world–companies and land–in order to fairly distribute some of the coming wealth. Doing so can make the society of the future much less divisive and enable everyone to participate in its gains.

Success requires ‘ample doses of pain,’ billionaire Nvidia CEO tells Stanford students: ‘I hope suffering happens to you’

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

When it comes to achieving success, Huang knows more than most. In 1993, he co-founded computer chip company Nvidia, where he’s served as CEO for more than three decades. The company’s success turned Huang into a billionaire. Now, with Nvidia’s chips in high demand for building AI software, it’s become one of the world’s most valuable companies with a valuation north of $2 trillion.

Huang himself is one of the world’s wealthiest individuals, with an estimated net worth of $77.6 billion, according to Bloomberg.

Elon Musk ‘guesses’ AI will be brighter than people by the end of 2026, but there’s a 20% chance it might end humanity anyway

Posted by in categories: Elon Musk, robotics/AI

Generative AI is quite impressive and has been the common denominator (in most cases) when tapping into new opportunities and unlocking new heights in the tech landscape. Microsoft has significantly benefited from the technology and is currently ranking as the world’s most valuable company, ahead of Apple with over $3 trillion in market capitalization. Market analysts attribute part of this success to its early investment and adoption of AI across its products and services.

Still, AI encounters its fair share of setbacks coupled with controversies and rumors. Perhaps one of the main challenges facing the technology is the lack of elaborate measures and guardrails to prevent it from spiraling out of control.

While relevant parties continue to try to establish control over the technology, billionaire Elon Musk predicts AI will be more intelligent than humans by the end of 2026 (via Business Insider). Musk shared these sentiments in an interview with Norges Bank CEO Nicolai Tangen on X (formerly Twitter).
