Diego Caleiro, a past SI visiting fellow and current leader of a transhumanist institution in Brazil, recently delivered this TED@SaoPaulo talk on Friendly AI and Effective Altruism. If it goes viral, it has a chance to be selected for TED Global. (The importance thing is to have lots of positive comments on the TED page, methinks.) TED Global's talks reach on average 40,000 viewers within the first 24 hours, and 500,000 within half a year.
Check it out, share, and especially: comment!
TED has launched a new initiative: TED Education
TED-Ed's mission is to capture and amplify the voices of great educators around the world. We do this by pairing extraordinary educators with talented animators to produce a new library of curiosity-igniting videos.
So maybe we could get someone to do a short talk/lecture on rationality related topic(s) (maybe cognitive biases?)? Or anything else that is related to raising the sanity waterline. Or at least just suggest the idea.
