WHEN: 28 April 2017 05:45:00PM (+0200)

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

  1. The kinetics of an intelligence explosion

Timing and speed of the takeoff


Non-machine intelligence paths

Emulation and AI paths

Optimization power and explosivity

We'll have a presentation on the above topics, with opportunities for discussion. We'll repeat this with later chapters every 2 weeks. You don't have to have read the book, though it will probably help to read chapters 1-3.


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