Isn't this a contradiction, given that EY is one of the few people who publicly promote the idea of unfriendly AIs being fatal?

All that stuff was the party line back in 2004.

There has been no /visible/ progress since then.

"I am sure if I was running an FAI project that was excessively well funded, it would be worth buying EY to put in a glass case in the break room."

To clear up any confusion about the meaning of this statement, I do agree with pretty much everything here, and I do agree that FAI is critically important.

That doesn't change the fact that I think EY isn't being very useful ATM.
