By the time you raise a fund to target a narrow thesis, the opportunity is largely gone— Bobby Goodlatte (@rsg) May 18, 2023
No VC had a search thesis before Google, or a social thesis before Facebook
It’s wild how many folks brand themselves “contrarians” only to search within a band they’ve pre-approved with LPs

I’ll share what we learned about food, after experimenting with what we heard in the comments.— Peter Livingston (@unpopularvc) May 11, 2023
Two big problems we identified:
1. Bromate in wheat
2. Seed oils
We feel WAY better after eliminating them.

I don’t get folk who say there is no existential risk from AGI.— Emad (@EMostaque) May 20, 2023
Do y’all have no imagination?
There’s so many ways to wipe out humanity for something that can be more persuasive than anyone & replicate itself & gather any resources
Enslavement, end of democracy more likely ofc
Is that why you are open-sourcing it? :)— Paramendra Kumar Bhagat (@paramendra) May 20, 2023
Make AGI for selling ads and you’ll have an AGI optimised for manipulating and controlling people— Emad (@EMostaque) May 20, 2023
Probably not good outcomes from that.
Not really AGI could reasonably take over any and all organisations in the world— Emad (@EMostaque) May 20, 2023
Then it can do whatever from wiping us out to utopia likely
At the very least AGI will end democracy one way or another

It was a far more tractable problem than AI alignment and mitigating existential risk in many ways.
If you want real AI alignment all the folk working on this should optimise it to teach every kid in the world. https://t.co/JHAmpTOrMJ

regulation should take effect above a capability threshold.— Sam Altman (@sama) May 18, 2023
AGI safety is really important, and frontier models should be regulated.
regulatory capture is bad, and we shouldn't mess with models below the threshold. open source models and small startups are obviously important. https://t.co/qdWHHFjX4s

Can we speed up language model training with a better data mixture?— Quoc Le (@quocleix) May 18, 2023
Our DoReMi🎶 algorithm optimizes the data mixture, speeding up 8B model training by 2.6x on The Pile.
Crucially, DoReMi🎶 just trains a small model (30x smaller) to tune the mixture.https://t.co/cj4GiA2KSC pic.twitter.com/OkZNrgEWgz

Everybody says regulation. Elon Musk. Sam Altman. You. Diamandis. But can we get into the details now? What exactly?— Paramendra Kumar Bhagat (@paramendra) May 20, 2023
