An Assorted Link: Death Is Optional

I visit frequently.

My experience in factory automation and some AI knowledge point me (in particular) to articles about the replacement of work (on technical, socio-economic or cultural levels).

This is an exciting conversation on this topic, Yuval Noah Harari, Daniel Kahneman: Death Is Optional

We don't know the consequences, but we must not ignore them…it's really different, whether we automate hand work or head work.

BTW, it may not look so, but I find this conversation with Chiara Marletto related: Formulating Science in Terms of Possible Tasks (Constructor Theory) has some relation to the above…it's about regularities in nature that allow the existence of information…there is no such thing as an abstract program.

Remember, tasks are the most important units of a quant innovation...
