Interesting. I had the Nash equilibrium in mind, but it's true that unlike a dollar auction, you can de-escalate, and when you take into account how your opponent will react to you changing your strategy, doing so becomes viable. But then you end up with something like a game of chicken, where ideally, you want to force your opponent to de-escalate first, as this tilts the outcomes toward option C rather than B.

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.
