Max Tegmark is one of my favorite AI “personalities.” In addition to being a noted theoretical physicist and tenured professor at MIT, his notable accomplishments include:

    A well-written book about our human future in the face of AGI / ASI, and how that might actually come to play out.
  • founder: Future of Life Institute
  • organizer: Asilomar Conference on the Ethical Development of AI
  • speaker : TED, and TED.AI
  • co-author: the AI Pause Letter: “Pause Giant AI Experiments, An Open Letter”, March 22, 2023
