Cool. Look forward to listening to this. Always enjoy Charlie’s thoughts. But I’m pretty sure Philip K. Dick and his fellow travelers saw this trap coming half a century away.

Just think of an AI automated civil service, implementing a bazillion contradictory regulations and policies, driven to maximize certain narrow statistics.

Then imagine someone like Trump and Co dumping new directions on it without knowledge (or care) of the side-effects.

Well, Cory, if Charlie’s talk is as interesting and insightful as your writeup of it, I look forward viewing it!

Hey I learned how to do that back in third grade!

He’s going to post a transcript on his website when he gets home on the 1st, too - which should be faster to get through than a nearly hour-long video.
