This Sunday at 12pm (PT), we're running another LW weekly online meetup.
MIRI's Scott Garrabrant will be giving a talk introducing Finite Factored Sets, a new proposed successor to Judea-Pearl-style causal reasoning. Scott writes that Finite Factored Sets is "a framework which I find roughly as technically interesting as logical induction", with wide applications to embedded agency, inference, abstraction, causality, and temporal reasoning.
In the days after the talk, Scott will be posting a sequence on Finite Factored Sets to LessWrong. For now, if you want to read more, Scott has written a short post on background motivations.
The talk will be given in Zoom. Afterwards there'll be Q&A and some open-ended discussion.
