Discussion article for the meetup : Tel Aviv Meetup: Short Talks on Assorted LW Topics

WHEN: 23 June 2015 07:00:00PM (+0300)

WHERE: Google Tel Aviv

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):

  1. Joshua will talk on the difference between Kurzwellians vs MIRI-ites in their attitudes to technology and likely futures.
  2. Liran and Vadim will tell us about their visit to the LessWrong mega-meetup in Europe recently.
  3. Vadim will talk about Maximizing Ultra-Long Impact: are there things we can do today that can matter on absurdly long time scales.
  4. 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 avorobey@gmail.com also works.

See you there!
