Three claims motivate the field of AGI Governance:
(1) We are fairly likely to have artificial general intelligence (AGI) this century;
(2) AGI would radically transform society; and
(3) AGI would potentially lead to a global catastrophe or worse.
In this talk, Sam will defend these three claims and their implications for AGI governance. He’ll go on to outline some kinds of work that seem promising for reducing these risks, and some of the organisations doing this work.
Sam Clarke is the Strategy Manager at GovAI, and responsible for answering high-level questions regarding GovAI’s programmes and the overall direction of the organisation. He holds an MSc in Computer Science from the University of Oxford, and is a research affiliate at the Centre for the Study of Existential Risk (University of Cambridge).
Sam’s talk will be followed by a Q&A and social, with food and drinks provided.
