Betting on AI is like betting on semiconductors in the 70's | Danny Hernandez | EA Global: SF 22
Show Notes

Danny discusses the three exponentials driving AI progress: hardware, algorithmic, and spending. We'll consider extrapolating these trends 10–20 years out. We'll translate effective compute progress into GPT-2 to GPT-3 sized jumps and build an intuition for such jumps. We'll use the extrapolations and jump intuition to think about what capabilities normal progress in effective compute are likely to yield. This session will be particularly relevant to people very concerned about AI, considering working in AI, or choosing an agenda within AI. View the original talk and video here.
