Gaming the Future: Technologies for Intelligent Voluntary CooperationOpportunities for bright futures enabled by bio, nano, and computing technologies are now within our reach. Their proliferation also comes with risks and authoritarian attempts at control. We explore how technologies of intelligent voluntary cooperation can help us navigate the traps.

This unlocks Paretotropian futures of high technology in which valuing entities can pursue their highest function through iterative play.This episode is a discussion on chapter 10 of the book: ITERATE THE GAME | Racing Where?Different players value things differently. The game of civilization emerges as the composition of these valuations. The strategy of voluntary cooperation serves a great deal of them.

CLP20 - "Repetition does not lead to skill": How to Apply the Constraints-led Approach to Teaching Martial Arts w/ Stuart Armstrong
Combat Learning Podcast
To end season 2 with a bang, my guest today is Stuart Armstrong, who is well known in the sports science and skill acquisition community through his podcast, "The Talent Equation." Which is highly recommended. Stuart thinks of himself as a "pracademic" -- a practitioner with an academic background focused on the practical application of the science of coaching to real-life coaching. We've touched on the constraints-led approach to motor learning quite a bit throughout seasons 1 and 2, but only in a cursory sense. In this episode, Stuart walks us through more specific ways we can use the constraints-led approach to improve our martial arts training. One of the main breakthrough concepts here I want to direct your attention toward is that Stuart repositions skill development NOT as knowledge transfer from instructor to student but as an adaptation to environmental stress. In other words, skill is developed in sufficiently *representative* practice environments the same way that muscle grows in response to progressively heavier weight loads from session to session. But in the case of martial arts skills, the load is not weight but instead challenge to the perceptual system, i.e. your ability to read an opponent, manipulate distance, and properly time your attacks and counters. I'm extremely excited to share this interview with you. It's challenging, information-dense, and worthy of multiple listens -- which is why I saved it to cap off season 2.

Paradoxically, it may be easier to predict the far future of humanity than to predict our near future. The next fad, the next Netflix special, the next President — all are nearly impossible to anticipate. That’s because they depend on so many trivial factors: the next fad could be triggered by a viral video someone filmed on a whim, and well, the same could be true of the next Netflix special or President for that matter. But when it comes to predicting the far future of humanity, we might oddly be on more solid ground. That’s not to say predictions can be made with confidence, but at least they can be made based on economic analysis and first principles reasoning. And most of that analysis and reasoning points to one of two scenarios: we either attain heights we’ve never imagined as a species, or everything we care about gets wiped out in a cosmic scale catastrophe. Few people have spent more time thinking about the possible endgame of human civilization as my guest for this episode of the podcast, Stuart Armstrong. Stuart is a Research Fellow at Oxford University’s Future of Humanity Institute, where he studies the various existential risks that face our species, focusing most of his work specifically on risks from AI. Stuart is a fascinating and well-rounded thinker with a fresh perspective to share on just about everything you could imagine, and I highly recommend giving the episode a listen.
