Less Wrong Melbourne's Rationality Dojos are self-improvement sessions based on the art of rationality. We welcome new members who are interested in exploring rationality. We're all "aspiring rationalists".

PLEASE NOTE THE TIME AND VENUE. (We're experimenting with different times and locations. So, it's in the first Saturday, at 2:00pm, in the Bull & Bear pub (downstairs where we sometimes have our socials).

WHAT'S HAPPENING:

This month, we have...

"The Singularity – What is the Intelligence Explosion?" – with Adam Ford.

Then two lightning talks: * Eike on "Gamifying your to do list" * Letian on "Go: a player's perspective on the game and Alpha Go" (Alpha Go referring to the victory of computer over human in the game of Go)

And a few other things including a goals exercise.

We finish at 5pm, and you are welcome to join us for dinner nearby.

WHEN: Saturday 2 April, 2:00pm arrival, 2:30pm start.

WHERE: The Bull & Bear, 347 Flinders Ln, Melbourne

DIRECTIONS: On the South side of the lane, between Elizabeth and Queen. Down one flight of stairs.

Hope to see you there!

Your map is of Melbourne, Florida, rather than Melbourne, Australia. As a result, the site sent out notices to people in Florida, but (presumably) not people in Australia. I'm not sure what you need to do to correct that.
