It would add some possibly-useful context to this review if you explained why you came to it with an axe to grind. (Just as race is both possibly-useful information and a possible source of prejudice to correct for, so also with your prior prejudices about this book.)jblack on Outlawing Anthropics: Dissolving the Dilemma
Probabilities are strongly related to decision theories, and you can't dissolve the question by rejecting them: in these hypothetical scenarios, the agents being discussed still need to make decisions.
So the question remains: what sort of theory leads to making good decisions in such scenarios? Or if you prefer, less wrong ones?pointlessone on The Best Software For Every Need

The long standing meaning of "cognitive" for hundreds of years before cognitive psychologists was having to do with knowledge, thinking, and perception. A cognitive bias is a bias that affects your knowledge, thinking, and/or perception.
Epistemic bias is a fine term for those cognitive biases that are specifically biases of beliefs. Not all cognitive biases are of that form though, even when they might fairly consistently lead to certain types of biases in beliefs.usizu on The Best Software For Every Need

Seeking: A program/framework to build models that can test social-epistemological hypotheses. Basically, I want to be able to run a visual simulation of little circles in a web where I code in the rules that determine how the circles interact with each other. I imagine something similar has been used in evolutionary simulations, but I don't know where to find it.christiankl on The Best Software For Every Need
To me this suggests that your cards aren't well formed or you try to memorize before understanding. Spend more effort on learning a fact before you put it into the SRS and work on making the cards clearer.christiankl on The Best Software For Every Need
On what basis do you believe 20-27" to be ideal?
It seems to conflict with common ergononic advice as found on websites like https://www.ergotron.com/en-us/ergonomics/ergonomic-equation that suggests the top of the monitor should be on eye level.
In the past I remember having a monitor that high and I think it created bad posture habit involving overstretching the vertebral spine and I now have it lower.mikkel-wilson on MikkW's Shortform
There is probably overlap between the matter of aligning AI and the matter of aligning governmentsrohinmshah on [Review] "The Alignment Problem" by Brian Christian
I spotted (what seemed like) omission after omission only to be frustrated just a few pages later when Brian Christian addressed them.
Lol, I had the exact same experience while reviewing the book. My most memorable one was when he introduced the critiques against COMPAS, and I thought he really should mention the case in favor of COMPAS, and I wrote a bunch of notes about why. He then did exactly that some number of pages later.
