This Sunday at 12pm (PT), we're running another session of "lightning talks" by curated LessWrong authors (see here for previous weeks' transcripts).

  • For the first hour, we will have a series of lightning talks each lasting about 5 minutes followed by discussion. The talks will be short and focus on presenting one core idea well, rather than rushing through a lot of content.
  • From 1PM to 2PM, we'll have a hangout in breakout rooms. If you are not interested in the talks, feel free to just show up for this part (or the other way around).
  • We want to give top LessWrong writers an interesting space to discuss their ideas, and have more fruitful collaboration between users. Think of it like a cross between an academic colloquium and some friends chatting by a whiteboard.

If you're a curated author and interested in giving a 5-min talk at a future event, which will then be transcribed and edited, sign up here.

Speakers

  • Eric Rogstad: The AI Does Not Care about Your Atoms Either
  • Daniel Kokotajlo: Why GWP is a bad metric for thinking about timelines and takeoff speeds
