Quintin Pope doesn’t spend a lot of time worrying about artificial intelligence hastening the demise of civilization. In fact, he estimates the probability of “pure AI doom” to be less than 1%.
Real-world experience just hasn’t borne out any worst-case scenarios, he says.
“A lot of the arguments people made about AI, prior to there being any AI worthy of the name to argue about, turned out to be totally wrong,” Pope said.
