OpenAI has recently demonstrated systems capable of advanced robotic manipulation, holding their own against professionals in the massively complex game Dota 2, as well as unprecedented language understanding. These results are fueled by simple ideas coupled with large amounts of computation, which echoes the trend of compute used in the largest AI training runs increasing exponentially with a 3.5 month doubling period since 2012. Greg Brockman discusses the increasing generality of these systems and their implication for how we should think about and plan for creating safe AGI.
Greg Brockman is cofounder and CTO at OpenAI, a nonprofit artificial intelligence research company working to ensure that artificial general intelligence benefits all of humanity. Previously, he was the CTO at Stripe, a payments startup now valued at over $20B USD. Greg studied mathematics at Harvard and computer science at MIT.
