Thanks for your answer!
I didn't know about the continuous nature of LNN; I would have thought that you needed different hardware (maybe an analog computer?) to treat continuous values.
Maybe it could work for generative networks for images or music, that seems less discrete than written language.
Je suis de Grenoble donc ça fait loin mais sympa de voir des rationalistes en France!
As I understand it, ecological psychology is more of a framework for the interpretation of existing results than a theory, but it does make predictions about coaching interventions, and yeah it seems like the results are pretty robust
Here is a compilation of studies comparing approaches favored by ecologically-minded coaches to more traditional training interventions:
Could be biased of course, but it may be a good starting point
Indeed, the language analogy is a good metaphor for what I was getting at
To be clear though, I was making the opposite point: that ecological dynamics is a lower-level language and bayesianism is at a higher level
Like, everyone talks about "opinions" and "mental models" but those concepts are more abstract and leakier, and the underlying reality is closer to information-control laws
But it might be the reverse, what do I know
Sure, in any case we're talking about unconscious "automatic" processes
The question is what kind of processes they are
Yeah, you're probably right about the style, I wanted to have some fun but I'm new at this
Not sure is they would qualify as "rationalist" but I’m really fond of the Stronger by Science website/podcast
They’re quite knowledgeable and cautious in their advice, and I find their explanations very clear
If you want to go deeper they have a subscription for a very serious monthly research review, and a diet app that seems very carefully designed
Thanks, I watched a few videos and really liked themMakes you appreciate the importance of common things
I'm just here to say that we should call it "Solomonoff's EDM" or "Solomonoff's EUV process"
