Hi friend, welcome to Lumos.ai!
My name is Lavanya! I’m super curious about AI, and all the implications of building something our brains can’t fully understand.
In the next few decades, AI is going to be either one of the most important equalizers or one of most profound divisive forces the human race has ever seen. If we reach AGI, we are going to build our own descendants, that power has never rested with any species in the past. And the implications of holding that power are massive.
There are so many fascinating questions that go along with wielding this power! At Lumos.ai I explore the advancements in AI and the implications (positive and negative) of what we’re building – what outcomes are we optimizing for? Will AI ever become “conscious”? Is it going to be hostile towards humans? Will all our jobs be automated away? And if so, is that a bad thing? How will we need to restructure our society in a world of widespread AI? Are we building this in an all-inclusive way that’s great for all humans on earth?
It might be too early to have definite answers to these questions, but it’s not too early to start asking them and thinking about them.
I would love to hear your thoughts and have you poke holes in the answers I find! You can message me on Twitter.
