Plenty I like in the tax proposal, but I’m quite concerned by the proposal to make a retroactive change to the treatment of retirement accounts. Sets a terrible precedent to do this ex post facto, even if you strongly support the underlying idea.

Feels slightly surreal to watch bad cryptocurrency policy drive innovation out of the US. For all of our flaws, I really do think of the US as the best country in the world for building the future. Hope this is not a sign of a trend.

If status is the last thing left after AGI, NFTs are entirely unsurprising.

The tax system in California has been broken for some time, and in a world of increasing remote work, is going to become even more broken.

Today OpenAI launched Codex, which is an API that uses AI to write code from natural language. There's a demo video here: https://t.co/hOOfo3MZlu

The best way to ensure I don't read something in a contract is to put it in capital bold letters.

The more agonizingly difficult a decision is, the less it matters. (Obviously not always true, but directionally speaking if it's really difficult to decide between two options, they are approximately equally good.)

The thing I don't understand about haters is how they can be so certain something is a bad idea, or won't lead somewhere worthwhile. I never feel sure something will work, but any study of history suggests it's even harder to be certain in the other direction.

Right now feels like February 2020, when very few people were taking this thing called coronavirus seriously, and lockdowns seemed unimaginable.

"The thing I have noticed is when the anecdotes and the data disagree, the anecdotes are usually right. There's something wrong with the way you are measuring it" -Jeff Bezos This is how I feel about SF crime data. Almost everyone I know who lives here is experiencing more.

The Financial Times wrote that "OpenAI ranks as one of the most unusual organizations on the planet". I’ve been here just over a year and I must agree! Here’s a thread.

We’re releasing Triton 1.0, an open-source Python-like programming language for writing efficient GPU code. OpenAI researchers with no GPU programming experience have used Triton to produce kernels that are 2x faster than their PyTorch equivalents. https://t.co/bdovUjTMuF

I've had the chance to try out GitHub Copilot for the last 20 days or so, during the private beta. 🧪 It's seriously mind-blowing, difficult to overhype. 🤯 This is the future of coding, AI used to make us all even more productive. 🚀🤩 https://t.co/CkzIv8ZhZb

That's the danger of trying to ban the discussion of some hypotheses. What if the hypothesis you ban turns out to be the correct one?

We've found we can improve AI language model behavior and reduce harmful content by fine-tuning on a small, carefully designed dataset, and we are already incorporating this in our safety efforts. https://t.co/nJISaAyY2M

Something I taught my 12 yo: Most people underestimate how much the world can change, and practically no one can predict where the change will happen. The only thing you can predict for sure is that some very surprising things will happen.

In the 9 months since we launched GPT-3, developers have created extraordinary apps using our API. Today GPT-3's search, conversation, and text completion powers 300 applications focused on new ideas from productivity and education to creativity and games. https://t.co/UGk7yVb1H9

I do not celebrate or feel pride in our having to ban @realDonaldTrump from Twitter, or how we got here. After a clear warning we’d take this action, we made a decision with the best information we had based on threats to physical safety both on and off Twitter. Was this correct?

The emergence of many new hypocrisies typically heralds an emerging new cultural synthesis. Are you disturbed that you agree with one of those viewpoints? Or perhaps that other people you respect do? 1/x https://t.co/ZqVKS06mrW

I sat down with @sama to get his reaction to our new video: 75 min of @Cruise autonomous driving in SF. So fun, thanks Sam! We got a bit off-topic and also touched on transfer learning, PARC’s advantage, and forking AIs. Full vid: https://t.co/Ulec1RA6Pq
