One of the issues with social media, it's been pointed out by many people is, "I think maybe, particularly on Instagram people look like they have a much better life than they really live. People are posting pictures when they're really happy, they're modifying those pictures to be better looking. Even if they're not modifying the pictures they're at least selecting the pictures for the best lighting, the best angle. So people basically seem they're way better looking than they basically really are, and they're way happier seeming than they really are. So if you look at everyone on Instagram you might think they're all these happy beautiful people and I'm not that good looking and I'm not happy so I'm a suck."
In a conclusion, he added, "That's gonna make you feel sad, so when in fact, those people you think are super happy, actually not that happy. Some of them are really depressed, they're very sad, and some of the happiest seeming people are actually some of the saddest people, in reality.
He also added, " nobody looks good all the time, doesn't matter who you are. So, I think, things like that can make people quite sad just by comparison. Because you sort of you people generally think of themselves relative to others. It's we are constantly re-re-baselining our expectations and you can see this." Say if you watch some shows like naked and afraid. If you just go and try living in the woods by yourself for a while and you're like the learned civilization is quite great it has a lot. It's a lot of its people want to come back to civilization pretty fast naked and afraid.
He also discussed regarding AI, "I'm not usually an advocate of regulation and oversight I mean I think once you generally you're on the side of minimizing those things but this is a case where you have a very serious danger to the public. Therefore there needs to be a public body that has insight and then oversight to confirm that everyone is developing ai safely, This is extremely important. I think the danger of AI is much greater than the danger of nuclear warheads being unlocked, and nobody would suggest that we allow anyone to just build nuclear warheads if they don't want that would be insane.
Further, he said, "mark my words, AI is far more dangerous than nukes. So why do we have no regulatory oversight, this is insane. I'm not really all that worried about the short-term stuff, the things that are like narrow AI are not a species-level risk, it will result in dislocation in lost jobs and you know that sort of better weaponry and that kind of thing. If humanity collectively decides that creating digital super intelligence is the right move then we should do so very very carefully, this is the most important thing that we could possibly do."
