Discussion article for the meetup : Singapore Meetup Group

WHEN: 01 March 2015 02:00:00PM (+0100)

WHERE: East Coast Park, next to the beach, at The Amber Beacon Tower, Singapore

There will be a meetup on March 1.

Time: 2pm until ???

Location: East Coast Park, next to the beach, at The Amber Beacon Tower* (Google Street View, more diagrammatic map) The tower is near Parkland Green, where people could get food before or after.

Activity: Loose socializing and discussion. If you have something you know you'd like to talk about, feel to post a blurb or relevant link here.

The meetup organiser is particularly interested to talk to people about how to decide when to gather more information versus act on the information one already has (which may be known to be inaccurate). This boils down to how to calculate an expected value of information gathering. Of course, by March 1 he might be onto something else.

*The Amber Beacon Tower is also known as the Yellow Tower, and is purportedly haunted by a murder victim.

Note: I can't convince the automatic Google Maps thing (here underneath) to show the right place (coordinates are 1.298176,103.905926), if you know what I should put into the "Location" field to make it do that, please tell me.

I'm there with one other person. Look to the lesswrong Singapore google group for any future updates. https://groups.google.com/forum/m/#!topic/lesswrong-singapore/cXtHTMQO4xw
