TapuZuko's Answer to Is the question of whether we're living in a simulation relevant to AI safety? If so, how?

One of the main questions about simulation theory is why would a society invest a large quantity of resources to create it. One possible answer is an environment to train/test AI, or run it safely isolated from an outside reality.

It's a fun question but probably not one worth thinking about too much. This kind of question is impossible to get information from observations and experiments.
