Full Stack Banana est un nouveau podcast de conversations nourrissantes au carrefour de la philosophie et de la culture contemporaine. Au fil de réflexions parfois existentialistes mais absolument relax, on s’efforce de bâtir un modèle d’échafaudage pour la vie moderne.
Episode details

Cette semaine on évoque la fusillade de l'école Covenant de Nashville, l'acte d'accusation de Trump. Nous couvrons également le grand débat sur l'IA, et on en profite pour faire un bref retour sur la vie de Gordon Moore, en plus de parler de “courtcore” avec l'escapade en ski de Gwyneth; Aussi: crises en Israel et en France et, les assouplissements des lois sur le travail des enfants sont-elles justifiables? Aussi: l'ascension étrange d'Andrew Tate et la décision de mettre le Narcan en vente libre rappelle l’ampleur de la crise des opioïdes.

“Gwyneth Paltrow, wellness guru, entrepreneur and actress, has given the world many things: conscious uncoupling, rectal ozone therapy and, now, a week and a half into that limited series officially known as Sanderson v. Paltrow and unofficially as the Gwyneth Paltrow Ski Crash Trial that is taking place in Park City, Utah, and streaming on the Law & Crime network, a new style subgenre that ought henceforth to be known as courtcore” (NYT)

[23:00] Pause AI

  • La lettre ouverte du FLI

  • Au nom du progrès, AI development should continue

    The reality is that no one at the beginning of the printing press had any real idea of the changes it would bring. No one at the beginning of the fossil fuel era had much of an idea of the changes it would bring. No one is good at predicting the longer-term or even medium-term outcomes of these radical technological changes (we can do the short term, albeit imperfectly). No one. Not you, not Eliezer, not Sam Altman, and not your next door neighbor.

    How well did people predict the final impacts of the printing press? How well did people predict the final impacts of fire? We even have an expression “playing with fire.” Yet it is, on net, a good thing we proceeded with the deployment of fire (“Fire? You can’t do that! Everything will burn! You can kill people with fire! All of them! What if someone yells “fire” in a crowded theater!?”).

  • Au nom du risque, AI development should stop — Pausing AI Developments Isn't Enough. We Need to Shut it All Down (Eliezer Yudkowsky).

    The key issue is not “human-competitive” intelligence (as the open letter puts it); it’s what happens after AI gets to smarter-than-human intelligence. Key thresholds there may not be obvious, we definitely can’t calculate in advance what happens when, and it currently seems imaginable that a research lab would cross critical lines without noticing.

    Many researchers steeped in these issues, including myself, expect that the most likely result of building a superhumanly smart AI, under anything remotely like the current circumstances, is that literally everyone on Earth will die.
