About the Book

What Ilya Saw: A Satirical Journey through the 2023 AI Landscape


What Ilya Saw hilariously explores the exaggerated world of 2023, where AI is omnipresent, dictating even the most mundane aspects of daily life. Through sharp satire and humor, the book delves into the absurdities and eccentricities of the tech industry and its key players.

Key Players
  • Ilya Sutskever: A prophetic figure lost in the spiritual musings of neural networks.
  • Sam Altman: Charismatic CEO with grandiose visions and inspirational speeches.
  • Tech Titans: Microsoft and Google, embodying corporate ruthlessness; Anthropic, with their philosophical zeal; and Elon Musk, the unpredictable demigod.
  • All In Podcast Hosts: Tech billionaires engaging in grandstanding debates.
  • Eliezer Yudkowsky & Zvi Mowshowitz: The doomsayer and the oracle, each with their unique, baffling predictions.
  • Scott Alexander: The rational bard offering skeptical contemplation.
Themes and Satirical Elements
  • Progress vs. Ethics: Depictions of AI advances sidestepping ethical concerns for trivial consumer benefits.
  • Corporate Greed vs. Idealism: Boardroom disputes filled with comedic misunderstandings and corporate jargon.
  • Human Fallibility amidst Technological Godhood: Ironies of genius-level thinkers easily tripped up by human pettiness.

What Ilya Saw provides a thought-provoking and humorous look at the chaotic AI-driven world, leaving readers in awe and apprehension about the future.
