  1. StrictlyVC in conversation with Sam Altman, part two (OpenAI)

    OpenAI cofounder and CEO Sam Altman sat down for a wide-ranging interview with us late last week, answering questions about some of his most ambitious personal investments, as well as about the future of OpenAI.

    This second clip is focused exclusively on artificial intelligence, including how much of what OpenAI is developing Altman thinks should be regulated, whether he's worried about the commodification of AI, his thoughts about Alphabet's reluctance to release its own powerful AI, and worst- and best-case scenarios as we move toward a future where AI is ever-more central to our lives.

    There was much to discuss (and he was generous to stay and talk about it).

    You can find the first part our sit-down — focused in part on Helion Energy, a nuclear fusion company that has become Altman's second-biggest project — here: https://youtu.be/57OU18cogJI

  2. StrictlyVC in conversation with Sam Altman, part one

    At our StrictlyVC event a few nights ago, Altman was generous with his time, spending an hour with those gathered to talk about the latest at OpenAI (the hottest startup in the world at the moment), as well as answering questions about how his other investments fit into larger themes that he expects to play out — and in the not-distant future.

    This is part one of that interview, focused on Altman's investments, including in Helion Energy, a nuclear fusion company that Altman described at the event as "the other thing beside OpenAI that I spend a lot of time on." We also talked Twitter, supersonic jets, making babies out of skin cells, and why he's "not super interested" in crypto.

  4. Stolen focus with Johann Hari

    Our ability to pay attention is collapsing. It’s not just you, our focus has been stolen by powerful external forces.

    New York Times best-selling author Johann Hari has been on a mission to uncover why this is happening to us and whether we can get our focus back. In his newest book, Stolen Focus: Why You Can’t Pay Attention, Hari investigates how technology and other facets of modern life have impacted our ability to concentrate. What he discovered were structural problems rather than the individuals personal failing.

    In conversation with UNSW’s Rosalind Dixon, they explore why it is so important that we pay attention to this ‘attention revolution’ and what we can do to get our focus back.
