Work in Progress

I’m working on a critique of Eliezer’s “Friendly Artificial Intelligence”, and hopefully I’ll have some things worth posting in the next few days.

Among other things, I’m trying to decide whether it would be better to hunt down the actual citations from things he’s written publically, or merely to refer to uncontentious points that can be easily verified with little research.

I also have a lot of Golden Age science-fiction reading to do. Locating the specific works that Eliezer cribbed his ideas off of isn’t as easy as you might think, even if the primary source is one of your favorite authors.

I am leaning towards citing only the things that Eliezer cannot censor or rewrite, even in principle. He’s ‘corrected’ too much of his own content for me to feel confident about linking any particular statement.
