In terms of explicit claims:

"So one extreme side of the spectrum is build things as fast as possible, release things as much as possible, maximize technological progress [...].

The other extreme position, which I also have some sympathy for, despite it being the absolutely opposite position, is you know, Oh my god this stuff is really scary.

The most extreme version of it was, you know, we should just pause, we should just stop, we should just stop building the technology for, indefinitely, or for some specified period of time. [...] And you know, that extreme position doesn't make much sense to me either."

Thanks for the kind feedback! Any suggestions for a more interesting title?

Palantir's recent materials on this show that they're using three (pretty small for today frontier's standards) open source LLMs: Dolly-v2-12B, GPT-NeoX-20B, and Flan-T5 XL.


Apologies for the 404 on the page, it's an annoying cache bug. Try to hard refresh your browser page (CMD + Shift + R) and it should work.

The "1000" instead of "10000" was a typo in the summary.

In the transcript Connor states "SLT over the last 10000 years, yes, and I think you could claim the same over the last 150". Fixed now, thanks for flagging!

Which one? All of them seem to be working for me.

Pessimism of the intellect, optimism of the will.

People from OpenPhil, FTX FF and MIRI were not interested in discussing at the time. We also talked with MIRI about moderating, but it didn't work out in the end.

People from Anthropic told us their organization is very strict on public communications, and very wary of PR risks, so they did not participate in the end.

In the post I over generalized to not go into full details.

Yes, some people mentioned it was confusing to have two posts (I had originally posted two separate ones for Summary and Transcript due to them being very lengthy) so I merged them in one, and added headers pointing to Summary and Transcript for easier navigation.

Thanks, I was looking for a way to do that but didn't know the space in italics hack!

Another formatting question: how do I make headers and sections collapsible? It would be great to have the "Summary" and "Transcript" sections as collapsible, considering how long the post is.
