“Sam Altman Says AI Using Too Much Energy, Will Require Breakthrough Energy Source”

Like, fuck, we just got more energy out of a fusion reaction than we put into it. We don’t know how to collect that energy. It took them like 70 years to get to that point. You’re not getting another energy source.

Altman is not making a statement of ambition or a roadmap. It’s an admission that he’s hopelessly bottlenecked and will be stalling very soon.

Futurism: Sam Altman Says AI Using Too Much Energy, Will Require Breakthrough Energy Source — "There's no way to get there without a breakthrough."

"There's no way to get there without a breakthrough," Altman told audiences, as quoted by Reuters. "It motivates us to go invest more in fusion," adding that we need better ways to store energy from solar power.
