Inside the episode

This past year there’s been a great societal wide debate: Tech-acceleration (e/acc) vs deacceleration.

Should we continue the path toward AI or are the robots going to kill us? We’ve been hoping Vitalik would weigh in on this debate ever since our episode Elizer Yudkowski —now he has, so what’s Vitalik’s probability of AI doom?
