On history-ending technology.
The economist Tyler Cowen recently suggested that radical technological change today marks a turning point in history. Is he right, and how would we evaluate such a claim?
Should we be sceptical about these big claims, especially given all the Silicon Valley-driven hype around AI? Or is ‘radical agnosticism’ the right stance?
And what about calls to rein-in the development of artificial intelligence, especially when these calls come from Silicon Valley itself?
