Eliezer Yudowsky is a renowned AI Alignment researcher. Recently on sabatical from the the Machine Intelligence Research Institute (MIRI) after apparently losing hope in the fight to prevent missaligned AI from being developed.
He recently appeared on the Bankless Podcast indicating that he had given up but was putting himself out there for (apparently) very frank interviews.
Lex Fridman is an MIT Machine Learning researcher and podcaster.
Caleb must be doing UBI
Hahaha lovely to see Eliezer himself betting here after this market dipped to 20%. Niiceee
@firstuserhere indeed it is
@CalebDitchfield how do you have so much MANA lmao
@LeoSpitz He's a new account and limit bought NO at 20%, I think by mistake :/ sucks if the case.
@JamesBills nah this was on purpose. kind of a long play but I still don't think it was a bad idea
(I'm not an idiot and I do know how this works...I'll clarify my strategy once this resolves either way)
@CalebDitchfield Can't wait to hear it!
Well, if the strategy was to give free Ṁoney to Eliezer, then this is a complete success.
@CalebDitchfield I can't imagine any strategy that involves buying down to 20 when both Eliezer and Lex have already said that they'll do a podcast 🤔
It was posted in the comments, too. I guess I'll wait for that clarification after the market resolves.
I'm guessing Eliezer hasn't listened to Lex's podcasting. I doubt he'll want to go on it once he does.
@CalebDitchfield dude, he was on some random crypto podcast, like, his bar is low enough
@Lavander Bankless isn't a random crypto podcast. It's probably the most well known crypto podcast. Also superbly high quality compared to Lex's.
@CalebDitchfield what makes it higher quality? I would actually rate the other way around - lex offers longer form conversations that allow guests to go into detail on their topics of choice. Lex is also far better positioned to understand the more technical aspects of AI alignment. I think these are both qualities @EliezerYudkowsky would welcome.
@JamesBills worth mentioning roughly 10x reach.
@JamesBills Frankly he asks unintelligent questions, isn't engaging, and rambles off topic quite a bit.
@CalebDitchfield Yes, but have you considered that he’s not trying to be intelligent, engaging, and focused. He’s trying to spread the message of universal love, man. Sometimes that means lingering on the beauty of the moment and the transcendent joy of being alive.
@NathanNguyen Market is whether Elizier will be on Lex or not -- not your opinions about him.
@NathanNguyen he's got a lot of offers. still, I could be wrong. thus my limit orders @ 20%
I'm confused, it looks like you were buying NO at 20%, was that a mistake?
@JamesBills not a mistaje
@LeoSpitz Lol it’s a joke. Lex has a habit of using vague abstract words like love, beauty, transcendence, etc.
