My thoughts on 8 possible long-term futures of Neuralink after attending the August 2020 progress update. This is a solo episode #2 of the podcast. Hopefully it’s interesting to some folks. The aim is for these episodes to be focused on a particular topic, at times challenging, at times personal, at times exciting to me on a technical and philosophical level like the episode today.

Ian Hutchinson is a nuclear engineer and plasma physicist at MIT. He has made a number of important contributions in plasma physics including the magnetic confinement of plasmas seeking to enable fusion reactions, which is the energy source of the stars, to be used for practical energy production. Current nuclear reactors are based on fission as we discuss. Ian has also written on the philosophy of science and the relationship between science and religion.

Richard Karp is a professor at Berkeley and one of the most important figures in the history of theoretical computer science. In 1985, he received the Turing Award for his research in the theory of algorithms, including the development of the Edmonds–Karp algorithm for solving the maximum flow problem on networks, Hopcroft–Karp algorithm for finding maximum cardinality matchings in bipartite graphs, and his landmark paper in complexity theory called “Reducibility Among Combinatorial Problems”, in which he proved 21 problems to be NP-complete. This paper was probably the most important catalyst in the explosion of interest in the study of NP-completeness

I'll need to listen to this once a year. This man is a superior information processing machine compared to us mortals. Best episode for people who like to introspect about ourselves, humans, life and everything.

30.00 regarding trying to work out why we have seasonal flu theres this great website that create a sandbox mode of various factors regarding herd immunity, ect all parameters are tweakable. I believe you spoke about this with our man from 3blue1brown search:"nicky case what happens next" if this link doesn't work https://ncase.me/covid-19/ also... sending love telepathically but ascii will have to do for now <3

43.00 intersting thing about AI and aviation instruments. the best analogy I have head for it is that pilots learn to work with the instruments as if it is part of their enteric nervous system.

Hi Lex, It was great to hear Manolis again. He is extremely intelligent and going to be a stalwart in the next few decades in science communication. It was very exciting to hear him tall about life on Europa, can you find somebody who researches on Europa? I think it would be a great episode.

excellent guest for the podcast I liked the crash course intro of the terminology and vocabulary of plasma and fusion physics before moving onto the topic. also I find it interesting when someone embraces both science and religion equally because it feels like he really understands both intelligence and wisdom

I feel the main problem with chatbots is they do not learn and evolve or grow like a regular human. if a conversation does "evolve" or progress the human will know that the bot has just done it based on a PID feedback / algorithm

regarding using the turing test as a measure of success i feel its similar to fiat (as in fiat money) if we believe it to be true then we make it true but it becomes a grand illusion

neurolink reminds me of the 2015 8min short film "uncanny valley", especially when you mentioned about gaming. Also relax and don't worry about your voice. people focus on the content far more than the tone
