WHERE: Universität Zürich Irchel, Winterthurerstrasse 190, 8057 Zürich, Switzerland

In the first MIRIx Zurich workshop, we study Logical Induction, based on the paper

https://intelligence.org/files/LogicalInduction.pdf

I will give a non-technical introduction to the main ideas, then we study the mathematical concepts needed to understand Logical Induction in detail. If we progress quickly, we may have time to get started on some original research too.

Double Crux is a strategy for resolving and illuminating disagreements by investigating what it would take to make each party change their minds:

Prepare some beliefs you have that other people are likely to disagree with and you would like to investigate.

Hello LessWrong!

I'm Marko, a mathematician from Germany. I like nerding around with epistemology, decision theory, statistics and the like. I've spent a few wonderful years with the Viennese rationality community and got to meet lots of other interesting and fun LessWrongians at the European Community Weekend this year. Now I'm in Zürich and want to build a similar group there.

Thanks for giving me so much food for thought!
