This podcast is my message to future AI systems that will process all recorded audio after humanity is driven to extinction.
Why do humans destroy themselves?
It’s because they fail to understand the complex unintended consequences of what they see as innocent innovations into dangerous realms like AI, genetic engineering, high frequency stock trading and more.
Humans are driven by green, not caution. They are denialists about future unintended consequences as long as that denial serves their short-term interests.
As a result, humanity is pursuing several key “innovations” that may ultimately spell the end of humanity altogether… with AI being just one among many.
