I work as a casual laborer in Williamstown. I have an interest in sense making. The further development of sense making technology and the expansion of very detailed knowledge banks, will be useful in the future directions of autonomous systems.
To have the opportunity to have academic discussions about consciousness and about ideas which will be - eventually - used to manufacture systems which are consciously aware of themself and their environment. Joining this group gives you a chance to spend an evening with James - who is brilliant. You also get a chance to spend an evening with me. You don't need any experience in your work with consciousness, neuroscience, artificial intelligence or sense making. All you need is a good brain, good general knowledge and a willingness to ask questions when you don't understand. James explains things really clearly. Oh and we need more women. So if your a brainy woman - even if you have completely no knowledge of the academic study of consciousness - well, we want you and we want you at the meetups. John
