I think this is exactly what I was looking for, but couldn't put it quite so eloquently. Thank you.

I put Player X on a game show and imagined they had the choice to keep the $30,000 they have, or risk it for double or nothing.  As you mentioned, if that player went on the game show because they had a $30,000 debt to pay before they lost their house, they're going to keep the money and pay off that debt.

(Perhaps one point of the question is to get you to reflect on what further information might be relevant?)

I think this is the case. I don't think there is a correct option, but it's just a question aimed to see how you think about solving a problem like this and one where more information is needed.

That's what I'm wondering too. I don't think there is a correct answer, but I guess it's more of a "how did you think about whatever answer you gave?"

The central question of AI seems to be:

Can computers do something they haven’t explicitly been told to do by their creator?

I could be way off here, but this seems like a simple ELI5 thesis for someone who doesn’t know much about AI or what the point of it all is.

Agreed. This is how I've taught myself to write code over the past year. Tutorials are interesting and helpful, but I never really learned how everything works together until I built something I truly wanted to use.

Yes! I actually did one week where I did wake up - gym - coffee - work and then one week where I did wake up - coffee - gym - work and noticed the days where I delayed coffee, I felt much more alert around 3 or 4. I also had to wake up 30 mins earlier on those days to do my gym class before coffee. Though I did notice I didn't perform as well in the gym.

I wanted to stick with it, but couldn't because 1.) I love coffee and 2.) It was really hard to wake up at the same time on days where I wasn't going to the gym, but still delay coffee.

I've heard this is a good middle-ground between quitting coffee altogether and just keep drinking the same amount.

I love coffee. It's a hobby for me. But there's been advice to delay drinking coffee about 90-120 minutes after waking up because it allows the chemical in the brain, adenosine, to be accepted by its receptors and wear off. When you drink caffeine right away, it blocks the adenosine receptors and they just float around until the caffeine wears off, and then bind to the receptors making you sleepy. This is often what causes the afternoon crash.

I tried this for a week and enjoyed it. I woke up, worked out, and then had coffee instead of waking up, drinking coffee and then working out.
