When we can be uploaded and duplicated, our old models of thinking about individuality won't make sense any more.

It is rare that a music video moves me to tears, but das Grundgesetz and kids rapping foul-mouthed ethics is clearly my thing. 

As a Swede I am also very proud of not being proud (but the Germans are better at it than us).

I spent a day talking with business about AI at Windsor Castle, of all places. My own main contribution was to look at the problems at the human-machine interface: even if we have perfect software and robotics, they will be a failure if we cannot explain (or they cannot figure out accurately) what we want.

Interview with me at 42 Evolution about challenges to evolution, limits to evolution, and what makes a good scientist. Notably cool table decorations.

A simple model exhibiting stable and unstable behavior depending on how well it can dampen itself:
http://aleph.se/andart2/math/simple-instability/
As a side effect of a chat about dynamical systems models of metabolic syndrome, I came up with the following nice little toy model showing two kinds of instability: instability because of insufficient dampening, and instability because of too slow dampening. x'(t) = Ax(t)/N - px(t ...

A small theory of dancing zeros of high degree polynomials in the complex plane http://aleph.se/andart2/math/dancing-zeros/
Playing with Matlab, I plotted the location of the zeros of a polynomial with normally distributed coefficients in the complex plane. It was nearly a circle: Zeros in the complex plane of a 100-degree polynomial with normally distributed random coefficients Zeros of a 100-degree polynomial with ...

How good is it to add extra researchers to a project? http://aleph.se/andart2/math/adding-cooks-to-the-broth/
If there are k key ideas needed to produce some important goal (like AI), there is a constant probability per researcher-year to come up with an idea, and the researcher works for y years, what is the the probability of success? And how does it change if we add more researchers to the team?
