Consider the following scenarios:
(A) Humanity develops strong artificial intelligence.
(B) Both of:
B1: The incarceration rate of blacks is not statistically significantly different than for whites in the US.
B2: The gender wage gap is not statistically significant in the US.
Perhaps I am too immersed in the tech world, but would anyone actually take an even-money bet on side B happening first?
And if not, what do all our efforts towards social progress and equality even mean?
