Discussion article for the meetup : Tel Aviv Meetup: Short Talks on Assorted LW Topics
We're going to have a meetup on Tuesday, June 22 Google Tel Aviv offices, Electra Tower, 98 Yigal Alon st., Tel Aviv.
We will hear and discuss several mini-talks on assorted LessWrong-related topics. Each talk will last 10 to 20 minutes, plus some time for questions and discussion. An approximate list (some details may change):
- Joshua will talk on the difference between Kurzwellians vs MIRI-ites in their attitudes to technology and likely futures.
- Liran and Vadim will tell us about their visit to the LessWrong mega-meetup in Europe recently.
- Vadim will talk about Maximizing Ultra-Long Impact: are there things we can do today that can matter on absurdly long time scales.
- Anatoly will report on reading some papers related to John Taurek's 1977 challenge to consequentialists: "Should numbers count?".
We'll meet at the 29th floor of the building at 19:00. If you arrive and can't find your way around, call Anatoly who's hosting us at 054-245-1060. Email at email@example.com also works.
See you there!
