Part 1 in interview with Robin Hanson on The Age of Em. We cover the nature of ems and their social systems, how they compare to AI and whether they might be the only form of AGI for some time in the future, approaches to prediction (generally & specific to the book), and particular concrete predictions about the impacts of emulations on our civilization tomorrow and into the far future
Next week we will cover more about em civilizations, grand projects that ems might work on, politics and importantly what we should do with insights gained to steer towards preferable & realistic futures.
