incentives to "beat the other team" don't seem nearly as strong

You mean it's stronger for nukes than for AI? I think I disagree, but it's a bit nuanced. It seems to me (as someone very ignorant about nukes) like with current nuclear tech you hit diminishing returns pretty fast, but I don't expect that to be the case for AI.

Also, I'm curious if weaponization of AI is a crux for us.

Crossposted from the AI Alignment Forum. May contain more technical jargon than usual.

This is an experiment in having an Open Thread dedicated to AI Alignment discussion, hopefully enabling researchers and upcoming researchers to ask small questions they are confused about, share very early stage ideas and have lower-key discussions.
