Cbus Rationality- Enter the Bayesian Conspiracy: Thinking Probabilistically

  • Aug 19, 2013 · 7:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Rationality is about the science of reasoning, and acting effectively to meet your goals.

This week, Eric Huff will induct us into the Bayesian Conspiracy, as we learn what it means to think probabilistically.

 

Parental Warning: We are a very casual group. There is often swearing.

 

Resources:

Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality: www.hpmor.com
-This fanfic is the most engaging way to learn what "rationality" is all about

LessWrong: www.lesswrong.com
-A community blog on rationality. The Core Sequences are most relevant to our meetup group. Also covers topics like AI and x-risk.

 

Everyone please bring a ferret.

    Would entice me further if any presentation description also shows the background of the speaker relevant to the discussion. Looked up Eric on LinkedIn, see he is a Post Doctoral Research Fellow in Astrophysics, way cool.
