Methods of Rationality in the Time of Hype

This week, Tom and Nate discuss some of the core and intriguing dynamics of AI. We discuss the history of the rationality movement and where Harry Potter fan fiction fits in, if AI will ever not feel hypey, the do's and don'ts of Sam Altman, and other topics.

(Editor note: sorry for some small issues in Nate's audio. That will be fixed in the next episode)
