Recently, I've heard a number of people I consider informed and credible posit that AIS may either no longer be neglected or may be nearing a point at which it is no longer neglected. Predictably, this was met with pushback of varying intensity, including from comparably informed and credible people.
I think it would be helpful to have a shared and public vision of what it would look like for AIS to no longer be neglected by general EA standards, or a metric of some sort for the degree of neglectedness or the specific components that are neglected. I think this is likely different from AIS being "solved" and is necessarily contextualized in the full breadth of the world's most pressing problems, including other x-risks and s-risks, and their relative neglectedness. This seems like an important bar to establish and hold community progress against. Maybe this already exists and I've missed it.
