check out the image gallery for my most useful excerpts

"Automation increases the share of income to capital

... and decreases the share going to labor"

"Intelligence without knowledge is like an engine without fuel"

"Another super-power that is available to machines is to see the entire world at once"

"Basic speech and text understanding also enables machines to do things that no human can do"

"Not because of the DEPTH of understanding but because of its SCALE"

"General Purpose AI would be 'everything as a service' EaaS"

"The direct effects of technology works both way: 1st, by increasing productivity it can increase employment"

"but further increases in productivity mean that fewer and fewer humans are required"

"Faster machines just give you the wrong answer more quickly"
