Smart AI and Society

Sam Altman, OpenAI
In conversation with: Ravi Belani, Stanford University

Sam Altman, CEO of OpenAI, observes that the prospect of making an artificial general intelligence that is smarter than any human is naturally frightening, but he believes having more intelligent tools will do more good than bad. Humans have gotten smarter, he says, because society is smarter and more capable than any individual human.
