The Grammy-winning electronic artist Skrillex is a longtime and highly active user and says he sees SoundCloud as a vital way of reaching the audience he wants. “There are kids on SoundCloud who only hang out on SoundCloud,” he says. Instead of worrying about whether people will buy his music, he’d rather “evolve with the world,” make sure he’s where his fans are, and figure out how to adjust. “I’m constantly discovering new music on SoundCloud,” he adds. “I use it just like any normal kid.”
AI, which will likely get to AGI by being programmed to self-improve, wouldn’t see “human-level intelligence” as some important milestone—it’s only a relevant marker from our point of view—and wouldn’t have any reason to “stop” at our level. And given the advantages over us that even human intelligence-equivalent AGI would have, it’s pretty obvious that it would only hit human intelligence for a brief instant before racing onwards to the realm of superior-to-human intelligence.
