Big Takeaway: In an exclusive interview with The Verge, Sam Altman confirmed that Q* was an “unfortunate leak.” So Q* is real.
If you need a refresher, Q* was a discovery that prompted OpenAI researchers to warn the board of an AI breakthrough before Sam was fired.
It was rumored that Q* could "threaten humanity.” And this is what Sam responded with: “we expect progress in this technology to continue to be rapid, and we also expect to continue to work very hard to figure out how to make it safe and beneficial.”
Altman said, “Without commenting on any specific thing or project or whatever, we believe that progress is research.”
Now that Q* has been confirmed what do you think it is?
