In this episode of Unlatched Mind, Vinny and Mike Brooks discuss the importance of realism over optimism when it comes to AI and the need for regulatory measures.  They explore the concept of evolutionary mismatch and how our brains are ill-equipped to handle the rapid advancements of AI due to our hunter-gatherer evolutionary history.  The exponential growth of technology is highlighted as a key factor that contributes to the lack of concern or understanding about the potential risks of AI.  Mike Brooks shares his series of blog posts that aim to raise awareness and initiate crucial conversations about AI's impact on society.  They emphasize the need for a balanced approach, combining hope and realism, to ensure the development and regulation of AI align with our values and long-term well-being.  

With warnings of A.I. coming from Elon Musk, Bill Gates, Nick Bostrom, Stephen Hawking, Steve Wozniak, and even Sam Altman, CEO of OpenAI, there are no doubt potential scenarios to be concerned with in the very near future.

In this episode, they delve into the specifics of Mike's blog post, "Regulate AI Now: Using Our Voices to Safeguard Our Future," focusing on the challenges and potential solutions related to AI regulation.
