Dis­cus­sion ar­ti­cle for the meetup : Seat­tle Ra­tion­al­ity Read­ing Group: 109-114

WHEN: 09 Novem­ber 2015 06:30:00PM (-0800)

WHERE: Paul G. Allen Cen­ter, 185 Stevens Way, Seat­tle, Wash­ing­ton

This is a weekly meetup in the Seat­tle area, cur­rently read­ing Yud­kowski’s Ra­tion­al­ity: From AI to Zom­bies. We are cur­rently in the “Death Spirals and the Cult At­trac­tor” se­quence of “How to Ac­tu­ally Change Your Mind”. See the Face­book event here: https://​​www.face­book.com/​​events/​​520808021411665/​​

The meet­ings in­volve dis­cus­sions of the re­cent read­ings and re­lated top­ics. They are typ­i­cally around 2 − 2.5 hours long. Bring­ing snacks is wel­come but by no means ex­pected. We usu­ally go for din­ner on the Ave af­ter the meetup. We are typ­i­cally lo­cated in room 503.

It’s not nec­es­sary to have read the ma­te­rial lead­ing up to this week’s read­ings (ei­ther in the book Ra­tion­al­ity, or in the Se­quences here on LW), but it may help. The items for this week are:

\109. Eva­po­ra­tive Cool­ing of Group Beliefs

\110. When None Dare Urge Restraint

\111. The Rob­bers Cave Experiment

\112. Every Cause Wants to Be a Cult

\113. Guardians of the Truth

\114. Guardians of the Gene Pool
