Discussion article for the meetup : Superintellignce chapter 2

WHEN: 17 March 2017 05:45:00PM (+0100)

WHERE: Lindstedtsvägen 3, room 1537, SE-114 28 Stockholm, Sverige

We'll have a 30 minute summary of chapter 1 of Superintelligence, followed by free-form discussion. We'll repeat this with later chapters about every 2 weeks.

Format: We meet and start hanging out at 5:45, but don't officially start doing the meetup topic until 6:00 to accomodate stragglers. We often go out for dinner after the meetup.

How to find us: The meetup is at a KTH academic building and the room is on the 5th floor, two stairs up.

Good luck with meetup!

In the Skype-based reading group, we followed the "Ambitious" plan from MIRI's reading guide: https://intelligence.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/Superintelligence-Readers-Guide-early-version.pdf We liked the plan. Among other things, the guide recommended splitting chapter 9 into two parts, and that was good advice.

Starting from chapter 7, I made slides appropriate for a 30 minute summary: http://airca.dk/reading_group.htm
