Covid 9/10: Vitamin D

which literature do you recommend?

The universality of computation and mind design space

The "Less Wrong position"? Are we all supposed to have 1 position here? Or did you mean to ask what EY's position is?

I don't think I understand your statement/question (?) - In order to know what an AI would do, you just need to simulate it with an AI?

I think you're saying that you could simulate what an AGI would do via any computer. If you're simulating an AGI, are you not building an AGI?

Li and Vitanyi's bad scholarship

So how does a poor summary of Hume = a refutation Solomonoff's induction?

Could I say something like, Alanf wants us to think he refuted a book but he can't even spell the author's name right...

Ok, but what does this have to do with the capital of Italy?

Why is Bayesianism important for rationality?

Mathematical Inconsistency in Solomonoff Induction?

Try searching "parsimony" maybe? Another way to express Occam.

misc raw responses to a tract of Critical Rationalism

I just discovered he keeps a wall of shame for people who left his forum:

Are you in this wall?

I am uncomfortable with this practice. I think I am banned from participating in curi's forum now anyway due to my comments here so it doesn't affect me personally but it is a little strange to have this list with people's personal information up.

Rereading Atlas Shrugged

She's just not a philosopher.

Don't get me wrong, I agree with a ton of her observations. As much as I agree with a ton of Buddhism. It is just not Philosophy.

Rationally Ending Discussions

The duplicates you got banned for here no? It seems self evident, but I don't hold anything against you for that.

fallibledupicates or w/e.
