Sunday June 28 – talks by johnswentworth, Daniel kokotajlo, Charlie Steiner, TurnTrout
This Sunday at noon (PDT), we’re running another session of “lightning talks” by curated LessWrong authors (see here for last weeks announcement and some transcripts).
Each talk will be 3-5 minutes followed by discussion. Afterwards, we’ll have a hangout in breakout rooms. The talks will be short and focus on presenting one core idea well, rather than rushing through a lot of content.
We want to give top LessWrong writers an interesting space to discuss their ideas, and have more fruitful collaboration between users. Think of it like a cross between an academic colloquium and some friends chatting by a whiteboard.
johnswentworth — “Mazes and Duality”
Daniel Kokotajlo — “Lessons on AI takeover from the conquistadors”
Curated posts: Cortés, Pizarro, and Afonso as Precedents for Takeover, …
Curated post: Book Review: Consciousness Explained
TurnTrout — “Power as easily exploitable opportunities”
When? Sunday June 28, at noon, Pacific Daylight Time
