Attached is the report on Phase 1 of our AGI study for your distribution to key decisionmakers and their advisors. We think it is the best overview so far of the views of the leading AGI experts on a very broad range of issues. This gets it “all” in one document for the world to short through to seek what we should know and do. Next will be an RTDelphi and then scenarios (yes, looking for funding for these next phases).
You are welcome to download and print some copies of the attached for your personal distribution as recommended by Claude-2 AI system below. Zhouying will be translating it into Chinese and an Intern from Korea will translate it into Korean in cooperation with Youngsook. Let me know about any plans for Spanish, Arabic, Hindi, etc.
The text for a press release should be ready in a few days – you can customize and translate it for your distribution.
I asked Claude-2 AI system: What are the best ways to get the AGI report to leading government and business decisionmakers around the world? and got this advice:
Send physical copies of the report directly to heads of state, key ministers, and regulatory agency heads in major countries. Follow up with emails and phone calls.
Present findings at intergovernmental organizations like the UN, OECD, G20, etc. Engage country missions to these organizations.
Brief relevant government committees and advisory boards in multiple countries.
Organize workshops bringing together government representatives, experts, and other stakeholders.
Recruit well-known public figures to advocate for report recommendations with government leaders.
Send the report to CEOs and board members of major tech companies, especially ones involved in AI research and development.
Present at major tech and business conferences like Davos, CES, etc. Engage with conference organizers for speaking roles.
Publish op-eds and articles in business publications like Harvard Business Review, TechCrunch, Forbes, etc.
Partner with tech industry associations to organize roundtables and private briefings with corporate executives.
Leverage relationships with tech philanthropists to gain access to key corporate leaders.
Publish the report openly online and promote it through social media campaigns, online ads, etc. to drive public interest.
Pitch stories with mainstream media outlets and journalists covering technology and governance issues.
Create a short animated video summarizing the key findings and recommendations.
Speak at prominent academic institutions with influential technology policy programs.
Present to NGOs and civil society organizations who can help advocate for the recommendations.
Engage prominent thought leaders to discuss and endorse the report's ideas.
The key is to pursue multiple channels simultaneously - traditional outreach, grassroots promotion, partnerships, and public engagement. Maximizing awareness and understanding of the report among both government and private sector decision-makers will increase its impact.
