What convinced people working on AI alignment that it was worth spending their time on this cause?

From Stampy's Wiki

I'm not yet convinced that AI safety by itself is a realistic risk. That things will work that well that it can increase. I guess the most interesting way to be convinced is just to read what convinced other people. So it's what I ask most people I meet about a subject I have doubt about
