I’ve been active in the meatspace rationality community for years, and have recently started posting regularly on LW. Most of my posts and comments are about AI and alignment.
Posts I’m most proud of, and / or which provide a good introduction to my worldview:
Without a trajectory change, the development of AGI is likely to go badly
Steering systems, and a follow up on corrigibility.
I also wrote a longer self-introduction here.
PMs and private feedback are always welcome.
Many people around the world believe that aliens live among us or have visited Earth at some point. By base rates, it’s not surprising that some of these people are high-ranking officials in the DoD or other governments.
Some of these officials have access to classified / non-public info, and are probably sincerely convinced that they have found strong evidence for aliens. But I haven’t seen anything to suggest that the publicly available information is actually strong evidence, nor that the believers with access to private information are particularly strong rationalists with well-calibrated priors and strong Bayesian updating skills. So the fact that they allegedly believe something isn’t much evidence that such a thing is true.
