What the timeline is still missing
- probably go back to people like Turing, IJ Good, or whoever who first came up with ideas around AGI; what did they say about when it would be created?
- dartmouth conference and initial optimistic ideas on when AGI would be created
- would be cool to include the various "standalone"/"self-contained" AI timeline methods and when they were first used https://wiki.issarice.com/wiki/Category:AI_timelines_arguments
- https://openai.com/blog/ai-and-compute/ -- this was quite an influential blog post in LW/EA communities
- https://www.gwern.net/Scaling-hypothesis -- this page has a lot of details on scaling laws
- what are the various AI benchmarks and how do progress on those benchmarks look like?
- the stuff in this blog post (especially the stuff in the table) https://www.cold-takes.com/where-ai-forecasting-stands-today/
- this thread might be notable https://www.greaterwrong.com/posts/hQysqfSEzciRazx8k/forecasting-thread-ai-timelines
- look through posts here https://www.greaterwrong.com/tag/ai-timelines to see if any seem important
- similarly, check https://forum.effectivealtruism.org/topics/ai-forecasting
- maybe look at https://www.greaterwrong.com/s/B9Qc8ifidAtDpsuu8
- controversy like https://www.lesswrong.com/posts/KnQs55tjxWopCzKsk/the-ai-timelines-scam
- look at metaculus threads and how predictions have changed over time e.g. , , 
- something something gary marcus
- probably include some famous people's views like Bill Gates https://lukemuehlhauser.com/bill-gates-on-ai-timelines/
- might be able to copy some rows from Timeline of artificial intelligence, Timeline of AI safety, Timeline of machine learning
- the AI Impacts experts survey paper from 2016 https://arxiv.org/pdf/1705.08807.pdf
