This sequence discusses circumstances under which AGIs may engage in conflict, directions for intervention to reduce risks of AGI conflict, and the implications of intent alignment success or failure for the usefulness of conflict-specific interventions:

Some researchers are focused on reducing the risks of conflict between AGIs. In this sequence, we’ll present several necessary conditions for technical work on AGI conflict reduction to be effective, and survey circumstances under which these conditions hold. We’ll also share some thoughts on promising directions for research and intervention to prevent AGI conflict.
