Two long paragraphs on Dewey's original paper, followed by one short paragraph hidden below the fold on everything that has happens since, seems like an inappropriate balance. I'm inclined to edit the summary of Dewey's paper down a little. Before I do, does anyone have a fundamental objection to this?

Also worth mentioning this concept "Value learning" is called out specifically in Nick Bostrom's book, Superintelligence, with the use of the envelope puzzle which goes a little something like this; "Suppose we write down a description of a set of values on a piece of paper. We fold that paper and put it in a sealed envelope. We then create an agent with human-level general Intelligence and give it the following final goal; Maximize the realisation of the values described in the envelope."

This description is old and should be properly merged with what the posts tagged should actually mean.
