Discussion article for the meetup : West LA Meetup - Value of Information
When: 7:00pm - 9:00pm Wednesday, May 23rd.
Parking is free for 3 hours.
Discussion Topic: This week, we will talk about the topics brought up in Vaniver's Decision Analysis Sequence. There are only five posts in the sequence, but they do contain some math. Of particular interest is the post on Value of Information.
Don't worry if you don't have time to read any articles, or even if you've never read any Less Wrong! Bring a friend! The atmosphere is casual, and good, intelligent conversation with friendly people is guaranteed.
I will bring a whiteboard with Bayes' Theorem written on it.
