As AI practitioners, what do we think about singularity and simulation theory? Have come to the recent profound thought that as a technology loving human, my purpose on earth is to push myself and my work closer towards the AI-Human synchrony (driverless cars, wearable tech, neuralink, smart home, etc)

It's either going to be the best thing or worst thing that happens to humanity. I don't like to make coin flips at the species level.

Even today in 2020 I don't know if people are necessarily happier than in the past. There are trade offs to anything.

I read patents like Microsoft's implantable microchip that mines crypto for the person based on successfully completing tasks. Reminds me of Just In Time.

Call me a cynic, but I think technology has been used to make inequality and subjugation of the people more efficient.


Some argue we’ve been becoming less happy since the agricultural revolution.

All the people who talk about singularity- how close are you to even building Alpha Go plus? We’re no where close to singularity. Anyone who has written a few ML algorithms will know this. For the rest, please stop referring to the humanoid robots on your slide decks and open up a Python script! *rant over*

Andrew Ng is the man! His ML course on Coursera is so amazing and such a good way to democratise knowledge on ML that has traditionally been so obscure to outsiders.

Where are we at with quantum computers?

No clue thus the question. There was a paper a few years back on simulated annealing that made them sound promising. No clue where that landed.

What would the objective be? If there is a single consciousness what would it interact with? Search for life amongst the cosmos for all eternity? Answer questions? Create infinitely micro simulations?

Ahhhh yes the simulacra.

Another topic for discussion: IF you believe we will reach the event horizon/singularity and future conscious beings (flesh bag free) get so bored they decide to recall our ancient consciousness (online footprint) just so they can interact with us and learn of simpler time, what do you think you should be doing now to make your rendering much greater than the average 2000’s human? Personally, I’d start tracking more of my daily body movements, journaling, pictures, videos all to social media.

Also obvious I’m self medicating and watching WAY too many YouTube videos LOL

What do you do when you feel like your work is not being appreciated? A simple example from a few minutes ago. My manager asked me to upload a document on the drive and proof read it which I did. In the meantime, she was talking to me about a presentation. An hour later she sends me to let her know when it is ready and I answered by saying that it is ready and that she can check it on the drive. Instead of saying thank you, all she said is next time just let me know.

Pt 1 - am a first year associate in big law and started dating someone the summer I was studying for the bar. My schedule was flexible then. After I took the bar, I had 3 months off before starting and I spent a lot of time with my SO. Since starting, my SO has said on a few occasions that he feels I prioritize my work/friends over him even though we spend most nights together. I obviously try hard to fit in friends when I can bc it is all hard to balance. I feel that he seems skeptical when


From 1934 to 1968, the federal housing admin upheld redlining— a practice in which residents of predominantly black neighborhoods were denied access to home loans (among other services). Owning a home is a meaningful way by which wealth is built and passed down generations. Black people were systematically denied the ability to build wealth through property— how would you feel if this happened to you and your family?
