Learning about Learning

Here we are creating a mental model of how learning occurs. It is a get-in, get-out, don’t-f-about type of model. We skip the low-down explanations of neurons and move straight to representations. How do representations form? how do they interconnect? And how do they contribute to learning?

Relationships between representations.

The three laws:

  • A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.

  • A robot must obey the orders given it by huma...

AI & Over Optimization

Artificial Intelligence is based on optimization. A measurable goal is set, and the system updates to better achieve that goal.

But what if the system over-optimizes? Like the famous hypothetical story of the paperclip maximizer. A system that is told to make paperclips by a paperclip company. The system does so to the absurd extreme...
