Andrea E. Martin & I present: On logical inference over brains, behaviour, and artificial neural networks!
Formal logic allows us to describe metatheories in use in cognitive computational neuroscience, and helps us spot formal/inferential fallacies!

@firstname.lastname@example.org I wouldn't even give you 10:1 odds on humanity deciding what exactly intelligence is before 2040
@email@example.com "No end in sight" he put on that slide, obscuring, with the confidence of a Vegas magician, supply chain, mineral extraction, labor and the very real possibility that a civilization battered by climate change will have no resources for sustained research projects.
@firstname.lastname@example.org I love this kind of stuff. In 1958, the New York Times reported on the work of Rosenblatt on perceptrons as "the embryo of an electronic computer that [the Navy] expects will be able to walk, talk, see, write, reproduce itself and be conscious of its existence.”
.@RichardSSutton@twitter.com estimates 50% probability of Human-Level AI by 2040:
incredible book cover
I will no longer engage in philosophical discussions about conscious AI/superintelligent machines, and here's why. (long🧵1/11)
This was nourishing to watch
this is what imagen (google's recent fancy schmancy text to image thing) was trained on btw https://twitter.com/Abebab/status/1445723482231173120
in the neutral fiction world, a crisis is a crisis, interrupting the norm. in our world, crisis is an inherent, and necessary, result of capitalism. we're always building to the next bust. "crisis coming" reads "business as usual" to the ones causing the crisis
TBH not just media... nobody wants to talk about what we'll do and they seem to say unhinged things like "but we'll be fine". I don't see how. 😶🌫️
I think the one thing that apocalyptic fiction has left me unprepared for is just how uninterested the news media would be in an actual apocalypse. https://bylinetimes.com/2022/05/26/un-warns-of-total-societal-collapse-due-to-breaching-of-planetary-boundaries/
Calling twitter #RSE
I'm in the position to help a first draft of what an RSE career path in Norway might look like at the university level. Aiming at describing a career path "akin" to the lecturer/assoc. prof/prof path, but for #RSE's.
Any resources I should look at?
This is by far the funniest law book out there

🧵Context for Katherine Birbalsingh's absurd comments on girls not choosing physics cos they don't like hard maths. She is an ally of the Free Speech Union and Toby Young - who supports scientific racism, and biological-based gender differences in IQ. /1 https://bylinetimes.com/2020/12/08/alt-right-pseudoscience-part-2-the-free-speech-union-and-scientific-racism/
there are two "revenge" fics about amber heard on @email@example.com. one of them has amber being explicitly tortured & mauled to death by johnny, and the other is about her getting "punished" by a movie producer slapping her & calling her names during rough sex. i'm actually sick.
