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.
