Can I set an alarm for when nvidia's stock implodes? I want the NASDAQ to understand it was AI's fault. I'll be asking GPT-5 for the date and time and the address of the next AI winter.

Do you think it's coming with certainty?

It's kind of sad to remember the original purpose of OpenAI after it was founded (benefit humanity, open-source AGI, etc.) and see how much it has changed in such a short period of time.

I believe the threat from AI displacing a percentage of the workforce is far greater and far more imminent than these doom scenarios of "superintelligence". AI is already depressing wages and job opening in various industries such as graphic design, writing, and even entry level coding. There is no way the marketplace or government can react fast enough to deal with displaced workers if that trend continues. Disrupting the job market will create civil unrest and an explosion of poverty that will unravel society way before we create anything close to a super intelligent AI.
