Wondering if people who are afraid of open-source AI infrastructure have, in fact, a deep distrust of human intelligence.— Yann LeCun (@ylecun) May 21, 2023
Do they doubt that the benefits of AI will be overwhelming compared to the risks of misuse?
Would they have had similar fears about the open internet?

Cars are not sentient. But they don't have to be sentient to be regulated. Insiders like you talk relentlessly about the need to regulate AI but stay vague on the details. I think that causes anxiety among the early adopters.— Paramendra Kumar Bhagat (@paramendra) May 21, 2023

GOP are extreme, unreasonable hostage takers. They want a spending caps deal 3x longer than any deal struck in recent history; steeper spending cuts that would throw American families off healthcare, childcare & food; extreme immigration provisions that shut off legal pathways.— Rep.

Republicans in DC are pushing for a massive increase in the $858 billion Pentagon budget, a $1.8 trillion tax break to people who inherit over $1 billion & a $3.5 trillion extension of Trump's tax breaks.
