Timnit Gebru, on Mastodon:

Remember the 22 word statement about #AI and human extinction & such? Its originator, the founder of, wait for it, the center for AI “Safety” says

“Natural selection disfavors individuals who stop caring about acquiring more resources and expanding their influence. The individuals who always want more are selected for.”

Yea what we need to do is “build bridges” and “talk it out” with these people 🙄 next day after the “statements” he joins Elmo’s grift, XAI or whatever bullshit its called.

People like this guy who refer to humans as “individuals” weird me out. I find it to be something of a tell—like they think they are being specific or scientific or something—and the tell is usually that they are a creep.
