I have always been fascinated by biology. I'd binge watch nature documentaries since I was a small kid, and I am deeply concerned with environmentalism.
However, I also have a desire to help the world, to do the most good that I can do. And 80.000 hours has presented some really strong arguments about why AI alignment might be my best opportunity to do this.
But, I really don't have the same fascination towards AI as I do with biology. This is just something that has never been on my mind. I really can't see myself turning my back to biology. It seems I ought to, but I don't want to.
One solution to this conundrum would be to become as fascinated with AI as I am with biology. So, I would like to ask for recommendations for books, documentaries, videos or anything else that you think might spark my interest towards it.
