⭐️ EV reader, Joshua Gans, comments on Nick Bostrom’s views on super-intelligence. I really recommend reading this, in particular, this wonderful insight about the value of economics.

I have two tickets to see Prof Luciano Floridi, Professor of Philosophy and the Ethics of Information at the Oxford Internet Institute, on Jan 14th at Second Home in London. I will be enjoying -15 degree temperatures in Oslo at the time, so I am happy to give these tickets to an EV reader or two.
Please let me know if you want them.
