Problems and questions

Things that I think are important:

  • Freedom
  • Economic growth, creating wealth
  • Cheap energy
  • Space exploration
  • really understanding human motivation
  • The structure and interpretation of organisms

Things I’m especially curious about:

  • Machine learning, qualitative understanding of neural networks in high-dimensional spaces
  • Logistics and the organization of large companies
    • Science and commerce as warfare
  • The appeal of war
  • How to program organisms

Questions, unsorted, quality not guaranteed:

  • Are there toy models in biology? What are they?
    • Is there a minimal model for understanding animal development from a zygote?
  • What makes a good narrative?
  • Do ‘benchmark’ RL models generalize in the time domain?
  • Why don’t we all live in group houses?
