A trillion dollar supercomputer

  • by

The year is 2021, an alien race makes first contact, strangely enough their message asks us to build a supercomputer with specifications that require a 1 trillion dollar budget, if we as a species fail to build it in 5 years we face extiction!

Furthermore the request demands the supercomputer has to be used to train the biggest neural network AI humanity has ever dreamed of, we must use techniques avialible right now (neuroevolution by genetic algorithms, transformers, RL, and others) to build a GPT-like AI.

The global economy is mobilized, survival of humanity depends on it, the computer is successfully built and the network trained with the enterity of human knowledge as dataset.


Complete the thought experiment, what do you think will happen?, what will come out from the other side of this city-scale megacomputer?
