Answer to Are Google, OpenAI, etc. aware of the risk?
The major AI companies are thinking about this. OpenAI was founded specifically with the intention to counter risks from superintelligence, many people at Google, DeepMind, and other organizations are convinced by the arguments and few genuinely oppose work in the field (though some claim it’s premature). For example, the paper Concrete Problems in AI Safety was a collaboration between researchers at Google Brain, Stanford, Berkeley, and OpenAI.
However, the vast majority of the effort these organizations put forwards is towards capabilities research, rather than safety.
