Will this newfound wealth be used to provide for the common good, or will it become increasingly concentrated in the hands of the few who wield AI technologies? Cullen O’Keefe joins us on this episode of the FLI Podcast for a conversation about the Windfall Clause, a mechanism that attempts to ensure the abundance and wealth created by transformative AI benefits humanity globally.

AI Alignment Podcast: On the Long-term Importance of Current AI Policy with Nicolas Moës and Jared Brown


From Max Tegmark’s Life 3.0 to Stuart Russell’s Human Compatible and Nick Bostrom’s Superintelligence, much has been written and said about the long-term risks of powerful AI systems. When considering concrete actions one can take to help mitigate these risks, governance and policy related solutions become an attractive area of consideration. But just what can anyone do in the present day policy sphere to help ensure that powerful AI systems remain beneficial and aligned with human values? Do today’s AI policies matter at all for AGI risk? Jared Brown and Nicolas Moës join us on today’s podcast to explore these questions and the importance of AGI-risk sensitive persons’ involvement in present day AI policy discourse. Listen here.
