Hi, I will be attending 31C3, the 31th chaos communication congress in Hamburg today and the next days. For those who don't know about this hacker conference, here is a summary:
The 31st Chaos Communication Congress (31C3) is an annual four-day conference on technology, society and utopia. The Congress offers lectures and workshops and various events on a multitude of topics including (but not limited to) information technology and generally a critical-creative attitude towards technology and the discussion about the effects of technological advances on society.
This sounds a lot like a suitable forum for talking existencial risk from AI. But apparently no such talk is listed in the Fahrplan. As this appears to be a conference largely self-organized I might find a slot where I can present UFAI risks to a smaller audience.
Thus this is a request for material I might use to present this. My first idea was to use the MIRI executive summary. What else can I use? Some quick slides? Where might I link to best? What could I use as a quickl handout/flyer?
Yes this is on short notice but I admit that I didn't draw this connection earlier. For me the 31C3 was 'just' a hacker conference to meet people at.
ADDED: And that's what it ended to be. I met Joscha Bach and took part in a discussion about consciousness as computation. I met Oliver Habryka (good luck in California) and also people from the Berlin (Hi Tristan) and Frankfurt Meetups (Hi Kai). Overall a cool event though personally I didn't get that much out of the talks.
