  2. David Ferrucci ?= Walter White with hair
    Great conversation though.

  3. great discussion! thank you so much for this Lex! i have been thinking that reinforcement learning with reward function being curiosity could lead to maximizing innovation and exploring to learn more and more instead of just focused on a fixed outcome that it seeks to maximize ad infinitum.

  4. Lex we know you are from the future. What we cannot figure out is who sent you πŸ™‚

  5. Fascinating thanks Lex. This brought out clearly the difference between an engineering approach and a scientific approach to a problem.

  6. Super interview. Thank you Lex, for all your hard work and dedication to these wonderful podcasts and YouTube uploads. Very much appreciated by all of us.

  7. 1 hour 58 minutes. I can't agree more. Cognitive biases and (problem solving) intelligence are tightly intertwined.

  8. I'm 49 years old and I like it

  9. 100πŸ‘πŸ»

  10. Thank you. Once again, brilliance unleashed. Long live Human 2.0!

  11. wow he is very arrogant

  12. Loved it. Have to watch it twice though. So dense!!

    Keep it up..

  13. at 5:13 he was a little bit annoyed by your question lol

  14. It’s like a dissertation on why Ex Machina is a ridiculous hyperbolic interpretation of β€˜ai’.

  15. How do you get all the giants lex

    how

  16. We don't deserve you Lex

  17. Welp, Got my podcast for tomorrow subway travel.

  18. They succeed in validating the hypothesis…
