> Horgan: I’ve described the Singularity as an “escapist, pseudoscientific” fantasy that distracts us from climate change, war, inequality and other serious problems. Why am I wrong?

> Yudkowsky: Because you're trying to forecast empirical facts by psychoanalyzing people.  This never works.
“Decision theorist” Eliezer Yudkowsky spells out his idiosyncratic vision of the Singularity.

Why energy requirements is not a strong bound on AI futures: http://arxiv.org/abs/1602.04019
Abstract: Does the energy requirements for the human brain give energy constraints that give reason to doubt the feasibility of artificial intelligence? This report will review some relevant estimates of brain bioenergetics and analyze some of the methods of estimating brain emulation energy ...

"And since the entire neighborhood is adjacent to Stockholm Central Station, there are direct transit connections via sky ways. Imagine traveling from your 15-story apartment to your train without ever stepping foot on the street."
We know that cities will need to get taller and denser in the next few decades. Yet it’s not easy to convince residents to build skyscrapers. This Swedish proposal for Stockholm’s downtown incorporates light, greenery, and public space into its tall buildings. It makes density look beautiful.

If you're creating art or music functionally, please consider submitting something to #FARM2016 The scope is quite wide so you might not even realize yet that you could submit your work.

Here's the official description:

FARM encourages submissions from across art, craft and design, including textiles, visual art, music, 3D sculpture, animation, GUIs, video games, 3D printing and architectural models, choreography, poetry, and even VLSI layouts, GPU configurations, or mechanical engineering designs. Theoretical foundations, language design, implementation issues, and applications in industry or the arts are all within the scope of the workshop. The language used need not be purely functional (“mostly functional” is fine), and may be manifested as a domain specific language or tool. Moreover, submissions focusing on questions or issues about the use of functional programming are within the scope.

Music folks are now dying of cancer in their 70s, not overdose in their 30s.

The real benefit is that any marginally successful 30 y.o. musician dying in "tragic" (ie. predictable) circumstances are good for the media, so they're transformed into martyrs without merit.

However, only real musicians get media coverage when they die old, and those are the ones that deserve to be remembered for what they've done, and how they changed the world they lived in.

RIP Bowie, Lemmy. Thanks for everything.

The ones who OD'd in their 30s are already dead. Classic survival bias.

- Violent crime has declined both in the US and globally: 35% decline in overall violent crime in the US over the 1995-2014 period, and a 6% decline in global homicide rates over the 2000-2012 period
- While terrorism and war have taken more victims in 2013 and 2014 than in the previous years, global deaths from war are still far below their 1970s and 1980s levels. Despite their increase, war and terrorism deaths only "remain responsible for perhaps three hundredths of one percent of global mortality".
- Between 1990 and 2015, the proportion of the world's population that's undernourished has declined from 19 percent to 11 percent
- Ebola looks to have been defeated: between November 1st and December 16th, there were only 4 confirmed cases of the disease. Trials of an Ebola vaccine this spring indicated that it was 100 percent effective.
- Polio has been eradicated from Africa, with the disease now only existing in Pakistan and Afghanistan.
- Since 2000, cases of measles worldwide have dropped by more than two-thirds, saving more than 17 million lives.
- Global child mortality from all causes has more than halved since 1990, meaning that 6.7 million fewer children under the age of five are dying each year compared to 1990.
- The number of children out of primary school has fallen from 100 million in 2000 to a projected 57 million in 2015.
- The number of electoral democracies worldwide is at a historic high at 125, up from 69 in 1989
- There are 75 countries that forbid sexual acts between consenting same-sex adults, down from 92 in 2006
- Starting from September, for the first time ever, less than 10 percent of the global population lived in extreme poverty, defined as less than $1.90 per day; this is down from 37 percent of the global population in 1990. 
The world is better-educated, better-fed, healthier, freer, more tolerant, and richer than ever before.

I love how "more tolerant" these days boil down to just gay marriage, as if that's the most important cause world wide.
