“[D]” John Carmack stepping down as Oculus CTO to work on artificial general intelligence (AGI)
Here is John’s post with more details:
I’m curious what members here on MachineLearning think about this, especially that he’s going after AGI and starting from his home in a “Victorian Gentleman Scientist” style. John Carmack is one of the smartest people alive in my opinion, and even as CTO at Oculus he’s answered several of my questions via Twitter despite never meeting me nor knowing who I am. A real stand-up guy.
