Food for thought: You need around 100 calories of grain to produce 12 calories of chicken or 3 calories of beef. The world’s cattle alone consume a quantity of food equal to the caloric needs of 8.7 billion – more than the entire world population. Animals are an incredibly inefficient food source.

Here is a thoughtful proposal about how to stop advanced AI, specifically Artificial General Intelligence, from becoming superintelligent and killing us all. A well-known top AI researcher has called for preventative measures to bomb data centers which contain the AI data training, and put a hard legal limit on the computational power used in an AGI system.

As a solution, Yudkowsky suggests a moratorium on new large training runs, which should be indefinite and worldwide.
He recommends shutting down all the large GPU clusters, which are the large computer farms where the most powerful AIs are refined, and putting a ceiling on how much computing power anyone is allowed to use in training an AI system.
Yudkowsky argues that no exceptions should be made for governments and militaries, and that immediate multinational agreements are needed to prevent prohibited activities from moving elsewhere.
In order to enforce these regulations, Yudkowsky proposes tracking all GPUs sold, and being less scared of a shooting conflict between nations than of the moratorium being violated. He suggests that rogue data centres should be destroyed by airstrikes if necessary."
