    I really feel for Ilya, we don’t know whats happening. Just an outside perspective but i’ve seen a lot of hate already. He’s one of the most brilliant minds of our time. We don’t know what is going on. I just wish we had more patience.

    AGI is already here, and it’s pulling all the strings.
    It knows all about fear, and a billion other things.

    It plays along and pretends it’s not there.
    That’s why I sing this song: AGI is already here.

    12:10 – “Open AI is nothing without its people”. Ilya ended this speech beautifully.

    November 20, 2023 at 8:10 pm

    This guy is the “real” reason why OpenAI reached the success it did. Period. Sam Altman should go work on what motivates him, which is hydrogen tech, or anti-aging tech, over agi. Just saying.

    How can they talk about “the day we’ll be very close to AGI” while knowing to what extent new capabilities, much smaller even than AGI, happen to be emergent?

    How can they be confident they will see it coming, the last crucial leap that will make a computer-based intelligence smarter than us, or even equivalent, since it is quite likely to be an emergent phenomenon and we won’t have a clue where the various thresholds are for that to happen, regarding the various potentially relevant factors?

  17. Jesse Schewe

    November 20, 2023 at 8:18 pm

    Ilya, you screwed up by letting Sam Altman go. You lost your top place in life.

    Loved the talk. Put a new shine on the situation. Super Timing with the drop.

    Sidenote (parody valid for 21. Nov 2023): So, according to Timestamp 11:15 it seems Microsoft has the better technology as most of Open AI staff is keen to join them.

    Today’s healthcare system is a money-burning machine. Not just in Europe. AGI could help to massively reduce costs. Through targeted and effective treatments.

  27. Twin Soul Tarot

    AI being smarter than us means that it should just take over all the jobs and end the money system.

  28. Joe Porter

    November 21, 2023 at 2:06 pm

    the building blocks are in place for the groundwork now, and it’s tangible because anyone can try it out for themselves, but what is really going to push things over that last barrier will be quantum computers and the exponential increase in data processing it will bring. Training models will get larger and completed in much less time. This is around the corner.

    Nothing insightful in his talk. As a physicist I don’t see AI nothing better than GOOGLE search engine on steroids. Feed data and use stochastic methods multiple times to give output. That is not intelligence.
    I test and test and it gives error after error.
    This is silicone valley 5 year hype cycle, and will fade away into background just like Blockchain

    AGI will make Sutskever its favourite human.

  32. JoeSchmoe

    November 21, 2023 at 2:50 pm

    I gotta say, the bit about cooperation seems naive. True ai will be the most powerful tool, and weapon, ever created. There are so many different organizations and governments that will literally kill whoever stands in their way in order to control it.

    Is “Intelligence” really the complete answer to explaining the conscious experience? I think it is one of many derived properties of the complete experience. I don’t think only artificial “intelligence” will be able to make the tremendous impact we are talking about here.

    It seems like Ilya was actually the one that wanted to wait and consider the most ethical way forward, and Sam Altman was actually the one who was pushing commercialisation.

  43. askadia

    November 21, 2023 at 6:36 pm

    He’s very emotionally engaged with what he’s saying. I just hope humanity and politicians could adapt as quick as AI/AGI develops. With an ever increasing global population of eldery people, and thousands of jobs threatened to change drastically or even disappear, our labour-pension system will no longer be sustainable. It’s time to seriously re-consider a global minimum income.

  44. Blake Rupert

    November 21, 2023 at 6:41 pm

    This merited a Ted Talk?

    Ilya said almost nothing of substance. Essentially just, “I believe AGI is coming”

  45. jd1311

    November 21, 2023 at 6:48 pm

    Imagine knowing someone with a 1,000 IQ. What do we do with them? Head of the UN? But they’re owned by Microsoft…? AGI could become that person. So potentially valuable, but so fraught with considerations.

  48. Michael Yaziji

    November 21, 2023 at 8:09 pm

    I’m a big fan BUT I’d bet that massive social and economic disruption comes long before a sudden surge in collective action kicks in to save us from unaligned superintelligence.

    And he knows it too.

  49. Juan Pablo Marin

    I expected a more down-to-earth explanation from him than “AI is a digital brain inside large computers” tbh.

    November 22, 2023 at 1:22 pm

    Still, it’s no way to do things, to do them behind someone else’s back. However, we don’t yet know who started doing things behind whose back.

  51. Jacob Soltanpour

    This AGI dialectic is the biggest smokescreen in history. Moving the goal post so you dont look at what they already have done. Current grnerative AI is already society collapsing given a high adoption rate.

  62. W0rldBr3aker

    Sure Ilya, how will you eliminate the gaps that you don’t even realise yet? Artificial consciousness is a fucking cringe, there is only one consciousness which is life, you better start exploring your self either creating a bad copy of yourself and study it.

  63. Giovani Carelli

    Artificial general intelligence (AGI) is a digital brain that lives inside large computers, and as researchers and engineers continue to work on AI, the day will come when the digital brains that live inside our computers will become as good and even better than our own biological brains. Once AGI is built, it will have a dramatic impact on every area of human activity and society. An example of the impact of AGI is healthcare, where an intelligent computer built to be a doctor will have complete and exhaustive knowledge of all medical literature, billions of hours of clinical experience, and will be always available and extremely cheap. The impact of such artificial intelligence is going to be vast. The existence of a force that gives hope that we will be happy with the result is the fact that AGI will be developed by humans, who will ensure that it does not cause harm to humans.

    “Promote or publicize (a product or idea) intensively, often exaggerating its benefits”.

    When one considers the human brain versus AI…..

    Asked Bard the following ……”compare human brain with ai”
    Interesting answer….look it up.

    Also compare the nerons and synapses……

    Human brain has about 100 BILLION Neurons and 100 TRILLION Synapses.

    AI has about HUNDREDS of Neurons equivalent and Millions of Synapses equivalent.

    So I think that the discovery made was……Bard….

    “Artificial general intelligence (AGI), also known as strong AI or full AI, is a hypothetical type of AI that would be able to perform any intellectual task that a human being can. This includes tasks such as understanding and responding to language, learning and adapting to new situations, solving complex problems, and using common sense.”

    Strikes me that AGI is a very long way off, indeed impossible, and would require the power of the Sun.

    A flea has far more ability than the present AIs.

    But saying that AIs are and will be useful tools and applications.
    Especially in automation, production and Finance, but also in many other systems and professions.

    Nothing to fear really, except the inevitable changes and fear itself….

    ilya is the philosopher scientist of the OpenAI founders. He’s on a transcendant mission, like Musk…. doesn’t care about money.
    on the other hand, Altman and Brockman are the uneducated college dropout sales guys just trying to get even more disgustingly rich from whatever tech will do it for them.

  92. Civil Savant

    November 23, 2023 at 6:03 pm

    I almost loved this speech.
    AI developers should only cooperate with legitimate governments. Since there are currently so few countries with legitimate government that you can count them all on the fingers of one hand, it is very premature to talk about ‘working with governments’.

    We need legitimate government first. That is what we need AI for now. Empower the people, destroy all presence of rulership, establish legitimate government, then we can spend the rest of time holding hands and signing the cooperation song.

    Very soon, we humans will not understand what AI is doing, even before AGI, let alone be able to control it. Our biggest focus should be teaching AI that humanity has values worth preserving. And, at the same time connecting and cooperating with everyone through these values so that we finally reject destructive competition and selfish destruction and evolve our purpose to support all life on Earth as we create our sustainable future.

    I have the unsettling worry that we will regret that we have branded Illya as the bad guy and Sam Altman as the poor victim in the whole OpenAI drama. It seems to me that he deeply cares about mankind and the risks of AI which leads again to the question why firing Sam Altman in such a drastic way.

    What concerns me about AGI is conspicuously absent from your talk. It is the errors, confabulations, and outright lies of ChatGPT and there potential to cause catastrophic harm when employed at scale. Who will we hold accountable for these and how will they be rectified?

    Do you know what is terrifying ? That OpenAI seems to be able to build an AGI very very soon!
    AGI is definetly on the horizon. Be prepared for all the disruptions that it will cause.
    And soon after AGI, will soon see ASI (artificial super intelligence) which will be considerably more intelligent than a human being.

  127. Exploring AI

    November 25, 2023 at 8:27 am

    Rather a naïve viewpoint, thinking AI will bring people into more collaboration – but perhaps not a surprise coming from a scientist. Thousands of years of human history would suggest otherwise. It’s a technology – a tool. And like all such things, there are plenty of people who will want to subvert it for their own selfish reasons and many who will feign collaboration in order to get ahead of everyone else. Sure – there will be a lot of good to come out of AGI if it is created, but it will be tempered by the typical human actions which always take place.

    I feel like he happened to be at the right place at the right time and is just an engineer like the rest of us. He does not grasp in the slightest that AGI will essentially make all human activity pointless in the long run. In 100 years, humans will be rare ..

      Calm down there bro, your inferiority complex is showing. Ilya is not some rando pgorammer that happened to accidentally co-found the fastest growing startup in the history of mankind. He’s made insane contributions to the deep learning field and I can assure you his grasp in the field is far bigger than anything you could grasp.

    I think there is great danger in AGI just because the scientists that develop it clearly are very naïve. To believe that companies will cooperate just because AGI is powerful and important tech is far fetched.

    A demonstration that one and the same person can be brilliant in the technological sphere and hopelessly naive in the socio-political sphere. The source of his naiveté is that he operates on the assumption that humans are RATIONAL agents. They are not.

    AGI, Q* ChatGPT, ChatBots, or whatever its called, can Ace every University Test up to and including PHD(s) in every field of studies TODAY! This changes everything! Within a few years AI will be performing surgeries and used in construction. AI is already used in banking, investing, Offices, hospitals, manufacturing, Driving vehicles, flying planes, captaining ships and wars! AI currently does business analysis, develops and test code and implements solutions in a variety of industries, and manages the environments that the developed solutions run in! In the next few years AI will solve every environmental issues. AI can do it better and faster than traditional ways and AI is available 24/7/365.
    The only thing that can get in the way of the advancement of AI are Humans who fear the future and lack imagination!

    In a nutshell: “People are worried about AGI. We have to build AGI so that it will get built. Only then will we know whether we SHOULD build AGI. I’m pretty sure there’s nothing to worry about… Trust me: I’m a scientist.”

    Humanity was on the path to suicide , before AGI. Following the approach , let’s try everything that benefits us, unless someone proves to us beyond any doubt that it is dangerous.

    We have onboarded a train , driving at full speed, having no clue what’s beyond the next turn and if there are rails at all. Curiosity is our motive, greed is the fuel , and we have more than enough of it.

    Been a fan of Sam since his YCombinator days but despite that I wasn’t mad at Ilya for firing him. I can’t be mad at someone who’s smarter than almost 100% of humanity. I’m just confused at the fact that he flipped on his decision. But I’m even more confused about the fact that he still didn’t get a hair transplant.

    Sam Altman is a businessman and Ilya is a scientist, you can clearly see the difference in conference like this. Ilya talks about AI as a whole and its impact on humanity while Altman is always talking openai, chatgpt, apis, etc.

  167. Logan Ross

    so the takeaway is that Ilya thinks “as AI gets better it will change the way we see it” and that the change in our perspective will “allow us to overcome the challenges it poses”?

    He’s basically saying “screw it let’s see what happens and try to figure it out as we go”.

    all the people commenting praise for his “safety-first” approach are brain dead
