Discussion article for the meetup : Tel Aviv Meetup: solving anthropic puzzles using UDT
Vadim Kosoy will give a talk about solving anthropic puzzles using UDT. The talk abstract:
Anthropic problems have been troubling thinkers for some time: the sleeping beauty problem, doomsday argument, simulation argument, Fermi paradox, Boltzmann brains etc. Application of approaches such as SIA and SSA to these problems have led to strange conclusions, pertaining not only to pure philosophy but also to cosmology, evolution and X-risk. In this talk, I will try to explain the UDT point of view on these problems that tends to dissolve the confusion and reinstate Egan's law.
We'll meet at the 29th floor of the building. Once everyone arrives, we'll move to a different room. If you arrive and can't find your way around, call Daniel at 054-7576-480.
The Less Wrong Tel Aviv group holds meetups every second Tuesday, alternating between talks on various subjects of interests (as this time) and game nights. You're invited to join our Facebook group and Google Group.
