In this episode, we’re joined by Nick Bostrom, professor in the faculty of philosophy at the University of Oxford, where he also heads the Future of Humanity Institute, a multidisciplinary institute focused on answering big-picture questions for humanity with regards to AI safety and ethics.

Nick is of course also author of the book “Superintelligence: Paths, Dangers, Strategies.” In our conversation, we discuss the risks associated with Artificial General Intelligence and the more advanced AI systems Nick refers to as superintelligence. We also discuss Nick’s writings on the topic of openness in AI development, and the advantages and costs of open and closed development on the part of nations and AI research organizations. Finally, we take a look at what good safety precautions might look like, and how we can create an effective ethics framework for superintelligent systems.
