"Out. Yeah. I mean you know part of me thinks that many many years ago that there would have to be some kind of an I hate to use the analogy I. Don't have a better when I probably should think through a better one before I start saying podcast but some sort of Pearl Harbor ask scenario now that it has to be an attack by another country, but it has to be an event that. As horrible as it is the common enemy idea that I the the idea of intelligence in an in an unbound survey way or in a way that maybe we feel like his dangerous would be so evident as to be real not as to be imagined I think you know it wasn't even the coronavirus here. You know what? What was it? It was. No. One's really sure about what the CCPA's saying. No one's really sure like what's true. What's not whatever I think a lot of Americans might have some skepticism there although you know certainly plenty of sympathy for the folks that were ill and for the doctors who really had a bad golf but you know you start feeling it crawl across. Europe right he started seeing like the pictures coming in with the CCP's not gonNA show you all the carnage from from a poorly handled sort of. Outbreak but you know across your, we were seeing and I think for Americans it was like by Golly, we've really got to think about this. You could still say we acted slow but the ideas like it has to be visceral. Might have to visceral here. Might there have to be some some brain computer interface some Ai. SCENARIO OF SPOOKS PEOPLE. So thoroughly across the glow, they realize we gotta get on the damn same page we can. Develop. In under three scenarios, we did on the future work technology out to twenty fifty. We did have in their some of those, for example, the idea of weapon systems of developing and and almost developing its independence capability. I mean weapons systems, alliterate act independent of human control, and we have that in this scenario. So by the way, the to it. Because government sometimes a little slow sometimes our self defensive and offensive, and see you end up with your independent hackers in the world underground folks. They create a new independent group. That gets ahead of the thing and then fighting cooperates with governments but maintains our independence from governments on they wouldn't be arrested so far so they have. Intrigues on this stuff yes. We have a couple of those. Things are lost control, and in this scenario we ended up concluding in that that particular there was never fully under control. He was a constant thing that yes or somebody hold you know part of it whole areas wiped out the still happens. Yeah. There's some stuff in there. Referrals. You. Have to check out the future of work. It sounds like that's the closest precedent to too strong. I at least in terms of your. Matter of fact, you wonder we had the very end art isn't all of a sudden things are happening around the world. We couldn't figure out why and how is happening and we think of. The Subaru has begun. Yeah. Yeah. Well, I will make sure that we linked to whatever is publicly available in that work in the show notes somewhere..

"To do X.. Think Thank X. told me to do this. No, they don't WanNa do that. Yeah. It's it's interesting. There's a funny analogy in the market research world in center of our universe you know beginning the company was working with big retail banks in a pharmaceutical companies, etc and we were warned by early advisers who who were pretty high up forrester you WANNA. Steer clear in your early days of Lake. PWS's in the KPMG's in the big consultancies because their goal would be to take whatever your research methodology is, and then they've already got all the enterprise relationships in and they'll just say, hey, we came up with this look at what we found look at how many companies we assess and so yeah, similarly there's. Consequences in your world too. So it is with ideas I. Guess Right easy to swap I can see plenty of upsides there. But of course, there are some downsides back on Agi here you know clearly you and I are on the same page why this interviews happening that much more thought would need to be given to how this would shake interested in some of your instincts neither you nor I know the future, but we have some instincts instincts on. What it would take to cross the chasm where international bodies our nation's maybe let's say would believe that human solidarity around this issue is in central. To be of the belief that at some point, we will have to come to that conclusion if we don't want competing cyborgs and competing strong ai I think that that's that's really the state of nature in terms of plugging in stuff into back of our skulls and in terms of building machines more powerful than ourselves. The state of nature I wouldn't leave very much room for for Happy Little Apes. But what kind of tensions what kind of you know precedence would have to exist four folks to get on the same page and say, Hey, we have to come up with a way to handle this. What do you think it's GonNa, take. That's why we're best prepare the sun. That's why. The but to give us a side point to.

Of the meetings occurred going into the climate change conferences against more precise, more precise and more people play in the original protocol China did not say you can inspect me. For what I'm doing on. Carbon. In the later they get. Yes. You can expect me about what so he balls so we gotta start. And that's what. Usually. Good. Starting. Off Ideally, this helps a process that ends up into international agreements into the actual negotiations eventually, a treaty ratification, and then a treaty can be modified updated Yep. So like the process itself that we're we're talking about here. So in terms of you know we've got a number of questions before we wrap about this. Topic specifically now that we've talked about a process and hopefully the further folks tuned in, it's useful to to think through how many ideas have to be pulled together to actually have a conversation about something. So complicated, you know if you think about who would have to be involved for something as important, artificial general intelligence obviously, you know representatives from different countries. Sure but. Deep questions they're doing folks from defense private sector and academia deed folks from different Geo regions within these countries a representative for cultural nuances. Do we need folks of a certain level of rank in the military as opposed to just some guy who happens to be the one region fiction to be interested in this stuff on not that I think it's IT'S A. Separated from reality, but for some folks it is. Deciding sort of need to be in the room is challenging and it might not be that in a first round, we can pull in the ideal players whose opinions we really think would matter in starting to concretize the conversation who might we start with with something like Agi you've already done some thinking on this. Remember that Berry beginning you want to know the date of the arts. Yup what are the norms principles values what does the state of the art on thinking about? Rules and audits or a What is the status of results from different international conferences because a lot of international conference meetings have occurred. Within that body as we go through that, you can pick out who knows the most in different areas. That's one part. Then, within also ask our nose sixty five, not around the world who ought to be invited. So. Most of the people who are invited or not centrally if we didn't right, you know like I might buy you and so. We might do sent but then our Iran note picks crew from Iran will be involved I won't know. Isreaeli Rayleigh no we'll pick who in Israel, and I will not know who should be and so so a lot of picking is done by Dr knows you're supposed to be a group of individuals and institutions cut across institutional categories government business academic..

So there's there's there's considerations there to around. Can We? Can we extract from? I, mean. This is this sounds like international politics intelligence in the first place can we can we pull in everything that we wanna pull in but not be permeable ourselves to have folks learn things And there's a parallel here. This is complex. Helped me remember why I started on this. Is Self interest of organized crime to take seriously why has every go to General? We don't know how long it will take to get to. Super. Goes to super without initial conditions being in good shape. We're toes. Now is a parallel. During the Cold War. Carl Sagan went running around saying. If. You have always explosions get enough dust in the air thus clouds in the air that you knock off your vegetation. So I don't care whether Moscow or Washington has a first strike defense or a second strike defense reviser both toast. So you've got to stop it because there's no winner. No matter what you do. No matter what you do you lose. All right. So the same thing we're saying, no matter what organized crime does. They're. GonNa lose with the rest of us. If we don't get the generally I write that moving this Super A. A soubriquet I can mess around organized crime just like they could mess around with you. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. So I'm thinking forward or I guess we'll close the gap more on Agi and on Super Intelligence you know I'm imagining going through this process with you know high up folks in China High Up folks in the United States and it start at one level I. Imagine there might be a Delphi cycle of sorts and possible scenario through, and then maybe it will go up to a higher level and hopefully there will be more powerful folks involved. It would seem as though it would be challenging to come to a same page conclusion about sort of where Agi. Should land whether it be in whose hands or representing what kinds of values or it doesn't do this but it can do this. You know on these are impossible things but you know we might as well take a swing because if you know imminent destruction the alternative, why not? What is the approach to wiggle around advocates? You know you can imagine all these all these human rights, things that Europe in the US are going to tout may not exactly be you know privacy and whatnot may not exactly be China's Cup of tea no matter how you slice it. How you frame cut is a process like this help try to find middle ground if there is one..

Current you didn't think about before so it should evolve beyond your original expectation then you're learning.

WanNa Pivot towards your eventually gonna be touching more and more on the governance of artificial general intelligence I happen. To believe that this is such a complicated scenario that it will imply some kind of a pooling of thought rather than hypothesizing in some academic tower or by some some individual brilliant scientists when it comes to coming up with ideas about how the future will be. Sometimes those have to do with real power struggles with the territory lines with the policies of. Across borders and boundaries. This process are there instances of this process where we've talked about very contentious issues with? Competitor's more or less, and are there any unique insights from that? Oh absolutely this is one of the essential assumption on the money and project his to global futures research. Locally not to have a PhD from Beijing. Moscow. At Harvard, with both got PhD's from Stanford know that's not global research. So. He leaves that like we have no in in Beijing and a node in Tehran as well as the than an silicon balance Cetera.

"That's good. Then you say. What scenario? What strategy should? I should I have the works in all of those? All right. That's the normal sort of superficial scenario plant, which is better than doing nothing on argue against because it's easy for people to do consultants work with it into understand. The real reason for joins narrows originally was. Her write a story reels Murray not describing a state. Like in a movie. A. Zach you have to have. With plausible stuff not that's the truth but Klaus we'll start why? Because as you write a scenario, you'll get to a point. You say, I have no idea what happens next this is crazy. I never thought of Oma John We've got to stop and you stop and then you do your research, call your friends you know all all that sort of stuff to fill in. The value, the original value of a scenario. was to force you into a position where you and your colleagues have insights into what you didn't even know to ask. Quick Vignette. Corporation was ideas was what happens if there's years ago? What happens? No thermonuclear war doesn't occur in years. But in Orbison to crisis comes up and you might have. While Caused. Trouble with thirty year cat. Is that you you? You don't know who's in the Kremlin? Furthermore International Affairs have changed enough. You may be looking at Beijing, etc. Right. So the whole idea of mutual assured destruction was you had to prove to your opponent you're crazy enough to press the button. How you convince an unknown power structure in an unknown political geopolitical on the world that you're crazy enough press the button. They didn't know. So you stop writing. And you do research and you think all right and they don't do that anymore. So you're stop and say I don't know all right now what they did was they came up with fallout shelters. Your original reason for fallout shelters had nothing to do with people being thousands of years underneath the ground. Would it had to do with his convincing your opponents? That you're crazy. Enough press the button. How by having real fallout shelters and then you say everybody go. So the in this scenario, the your opponents sees news stories video. Mass crowds in New York City going up massive crowds in. Chicago mass crowds Los Angeles the whole country is going to these fallout jobs. What does the opponent? Thank you guys are crazy..

"The Rand Corporation had to figure out how to beat World War Three. Well, we didn't know a lot about that beginning, but you had all these brilliant people that don't always cooperate. And sometimes in the military, sometimes, people were afraid to criticize admiral if there are only a cap yeah you avoid all this crap by saying here's around one tended out and they response good. But without a names, no one knows that you're a private or a president is state. and. So the ideas become persuasive rather than personalities or your. Then, all those responses but also happens to sometimes someone doesn't respond to somebody else's idea. If they're in person Zanele on that yeah all but then the second round, those ideas on the first are in there. So you have to respond to all that second first-round stop that you wouldn't normally have responded to. The same thing goes on those results.

"This is Daniel Fidel in you're listening to our Saturday futures series. This twelve part series is about artificial intelligence. In, this episode nine in this series, we've talked about near-term governance considerations for AI and also long-term. What's IT GONNA take it both a national and international level to sort of forge a future with it's very powerful technology in the decades ahead that hopefully be an aggregate good one, not one that instigates more economic disparity or war or other negative consequences that we'd like to avoid, and there are few people who've done more futures thinking and thinking about policy the future of governments future of enterprises I ended mapping those futures out then Jerome Glenn who is the founder of the Millennium Project to for a quarter of a century has been running the. Millennium Project, and essentially doing just that working with governments working with large organizations from the Red Cross to the government of Korea to sort of map out what the future looks like under different circumstances into poll together varied stakeholders often internationally to think about how we can get along what kind of future we want to craft and what's going to be a forged win win scenario for that future. Maybe we can do to prepare for it We speak with Jerome this week about what that would look for artificial general intelligence towards the latter part of this twelve part series, and we're on episode nine. So this is the back half for sure. We're GONNA be talking more and more about the long term consequences of strong ai when this technology becomes very powerful. The big question in today's episode is will, what does it mean to prepare for that? Who needs to be at the table in order to make sure that that's a peaceful transition? What kind of questions do we need to ask in order to ensure that we're sort of buffering against risks in so much as we can actually do that and jerome with his experience and exactly the space sort of breaks that down in depth I'd love to get your thoughts on this episode in this series in general, you can go to e..

Nymex crude oil down one and a half percent or ninety three cents a sixty dollars fifty cents a barrel. That's a Bloomberg business flash. Tom, and John futures negative twenty eight negative twenty four a little bit better buried in Tom levels, wonderful note, on tesla. John Farrell is gene, monster capitulating as a precautionary measure. The bulls are reluctantly pulling away for pulling pulling in a little bit. We saw it with Dan is what Bush this week as well the bull slowly. Stunts capitulate just a little bit. Did you see that Morgan? Stanley's Adam Jonas, reportedly had a private co with investors. Some of us were working yesterday while you were jetting back from the guys that the first of many for the rest of the moaning, here's some highlights from the Cohen was seen as a growth story. Quote today supply seats demand that burning cash. Nobody cares about the model why they raise capital and there's no strategic buying today. Tesla is not really seen as it grows story. It's seen more as distress credit and restructuring story this from Adam Jonas, Morgan Stanley. Want to bring in Kevin Tynan, Bloomberg intelligence Sania automobile analyst, Kevin. How do you respond to that? Those words, the idea that we're moving towards a distress credit and restructuring story. The stock stand forty two percent. The debt is being bats at forty two percent this year just to be specific. Kevin, what are you telling people at the moment? Well, I it's interesting that they're seeing this now. I, I mean it's not as if this is, you know, a pivot in fundamental story that is tesla on what the valuation was based on historically. I mean, this is a company that was always about this. You know, discounted modeled from fifty years into the future. So, you know, the idea that, that you're actually looking at the numbers now and saying, hey, this might not be as rosy picture, as we think, is a little disconcerting to say, like, well, this has been the story all along. You know, and the other thing is some of the analysts where you look at even even the bearish analysts have price targets trading. You know where the stock is trading much above where those targets are now. So you're your lower target to two hundred and thirty dollars. And it's you know, in the one eighty so yeah, wonder if there's going to be more adjustment on that front to Kevin. Still the most polarized stuck on the planet. Eleven buys. Fifteen sounds just kind of the NFL page, the recommendations page on the Bloomberg. Kevin, it just feels at the moment the bathroom in control of the narrative. And I just wanted to how pivotal this moment might be to the company. Well, and if you look at all the momentum, you know, in either direction at this stock is always treated on obviously cutting in the in the negative direction now. So it'll be interesting to see, you know, big funds or, or investors that have profits if they just start taking getting out and saying, look we, we were in early. We made money on this thing and now it's time stays just stay out of his mind field at this point. Kevin water people like Robin Wren, Felicia, mayo Chris Lister, James Joe Jerome Glenn president automotive operations. What are the people beneath Elon Musk doing day to day? And I think you know that one of the things that doesn't get talked about enough, right? This is a company that is true. Trying to be an automaker. It's trying to position its help as a technology company, and as a disruptor in it is, you know, but I've said all along this at the end of the day is about a company bending metal into the shape of cars, and that business is about scale and not just scale of demand or manufacturing and production, but of distribution of service customer service. Yeah. So there's a lot of things at tesla. Does that they have to get to the next level, they have to become an automaker and have this global scope and scale to be able to satisfy demand and to react to customer, you know, issues and parts and service and things like that. And they're just not there yet, Kevin. This was meant to be a transformative business in many ways. It has been it's changed the landscape of the companies have had to change because tesla exists, but in the here and now the stunning to look like another road, I make it just in terms of behavior that needs to get a control. The cost amount is going to be selfish. That could be anyone else in the automotive sector could knit. Yeah. Couldn't and the thing though, the differences with those legacy automakers is that there's a part of the business, and nobody really talks about that just paying bills and printing money. And that's the truck side of the business. Yeah. Doesn't have that right. So there's, there's three models at this point that are all electric drivetrain battery electric vehicles where, you know, these other automakers the Volkswagens and Toyotas, in General Motors of the world have the ability to just be, you know, stamping out pickup, trucks and vs and crossovers and funding that mansion at their own pace. Kevin one final question very quickly. You've got like eight cars owned at any given time, what keeps you from owning tesla? You know, I'm at the point now Tom where my kids have their own cars, so I like roadster convertible wind in my hair, while I have some and, you know, I want more cylinders, I want twelve cylinders, and I want to be able to put the top down Kevin Tynan. Thank you so much. We'd recommend Bernstein medical. We do that, here if you should here, please, visit their Manhattan center today, Kevin, I have no. What's great about Kevin? Folks.

"Competing airport in the state. But when you look at other states out there there are other options. I mean, even Tennessee you got the Chattanooga report, which people refer as the northern Atlanta airport, and I think that's nuts to send people out of state to to fly. But I mean, Tennessee, you've got Memphis. You got a Nashville you got Chattanooga. You've got you. Go to Washington DC. You've got Dulles. You've got Baltimore. You've got a Reagan national, go to California. You've got San Francisco. You got Los Angeles. Go to Chicago, you've got midway, and you've got a O'Hare. We have the largest airport in the world. And delta essentially has a gate monopoly mean just talked to the people from JetBlue about the hassles of even working with the city of Atlanta to get access there. The city of Atlanta did not roll out the welcome mat for JetBlue because it didn't want to ruffle feathers with delta delta has for years funded outside interest groups to harass the city the county commission polling county about its airport. They have stifled other attempts and Lawrenceville and elsewhere for other airports because delta controls most of the gates at Hartsfield it controls, most of the takeoff and landing slots, it would be good for us. I mean, you you've got down in Macon. I used to be the chairman of the properties committee for the city council. Make an he had five hundred more feet to the airport in making and you can land heavy flights bigger planes. You could offload a lot of capacity, and there are a lot of people believe it or not outside of the metro Atlanta area. South of I twenty who would probably rather fly out of a place like that sort of navigating the airport, but I mean, just put that put that on the side burner. The the issue of the city of Atlanta helping to block the growth of another economic engine in the state in terms of aviation because it's catering so much to delta and controlling its monopoly at the airport. But put all of that aside pretend it's taken off the table assume another hub is taken off the table. If you had a statewide aviation authority much like we have a statewide ports authority. We've got multiple ports of the state people focus on savannah, but we got Brunswick as well. But if you had a statewide airport authority, controlling the major economic driver of the state, you could add that five hundred feet to the runway down and make an and say, we're not going to allow competitors against delta because Delta's homegrown, but we are going to encourage cargo carriers to fly there instead of Atlanta because we now have the inland ports situation. Core deal Georgia down south of making. Now, they built what's called an inland port. So trucks can take cargo out of the port of Brunswick and out of the port of savannah and truck them to the I seventy five corridor and core deal Georgia, and that's where they deal with customs and everything else. So it makes it easier to get stuff out of the port of of savannah and get into a distribution hub. So you all flowed cargo capacity from Atlanta, you free up landing and takeoff. Slots for delta, you free up room around the airport for another for another concourse, and you move a lot of the stuff that's headed to South Georgia. Middle Georgia down to making. But you can't do that right now because the city of Atlanta controls at all, and I've been thinking about this, and I've had conversations with several people who are familiar with the thinking of the study committee and having been the chairman of the public properties committee for for making Georgia several years ago and been as the chairman of that in charge of the airport in make an I'm familiar with these issues, and it just it kinda hit me the the state legislature is so focused on we need rural broadband, we need rule broadband. What if you take the airport away from the city of Atlanta away from actually technically the mayor of Atlanta? So that one person in the city of Atlanta is not controlling the entire economic fate of the state, you handed off to an authority much like the Portsmouth authority where it has accountability. It has to report to the legislature. You're not gonna have one of those situations where we had that fire at the airport that took out power and in caused an international aviation problem because of what happened at hartsfield-jackson dead mayors international airport, and there's no accountability. You there actually is accountability. There are investigations the state is involved. The state has jurisdiction. And you build this airport authority up. You don't take just Hartsfield but take the middle Georgia regional airport as well. Put it in there, and suddenly you've got an economic engine that isn't focused right onto eighty five on the south side of Atlanta. But actually realizes that there's a way to offload capacity from that airport. Put it at another airport to free up landing and takeoff slots for delta and other airlines to free up space at that airport. We can't do any of that stuff right now. Because the mayor of Atlanta controls it as a feifdom, and again, this has nothing to do with the particular it has nothing to do with quiche land's bottom, but have you paid attention to the FBI investigation at city hall. Have you paid attention to the procurement and contract problems? We're letting one person in one city control the economic driver of not just Georgia, but the southeast that's insane. To me. And so I would tell the administration their way waste forward. And I suspect you could probably pick up democratic votes. Maybe not in the city of Atlanta. But around the state pick democratic support and build some bipartisan support for growing economic engine. You want to focus on building rural Georgia, you want to focus on growing outside of Atlanta will one of the things you're going to have to do is stop letting the airport be so Atlanta's a Centric because that airport is the economic generator for the entire state in. So we should start treating it as economic generator of the entire state to show that other parts of the state might benefit from rethinking the entire transportation plan in for in terms of cargo and capacity and things like that. And you can't do that right now. While the city of Atlanta controls, the airport, the state legislatures looking into this issue. I think conservatives in the state legislature could find some bipartisan democratic support to make this happen. Jonathan last of the sub beacon podcast recommended an app to me for my iphone for my kids. Awhile back, Mike kids had sound machines. And you know, I can hear the machines coming from down the hall.
