I see that many good friends and respected researchers signed the open
letter. I didn’t sign it (yet), because I think that important
progress in AI, including the development of smarter-than-human AI and
superintelligence, can only emerge from free, spontaneous and
unconstrained research. I don’t disagree with the open letter or the
research priorities document, but setting common priorities is not the
aspect of AI research that I find more interesting at this moment - I
prefer to let a thousand flowers bloom.
