Welcome to my daily learning journal. Here is today’s list:
1. Ted Talk – Sam Harris: Can we build AI without losing control over it? “Scared of superintelligent AI? You should be, says neuroscientist and philosopher Sam Harris — and not just in some theoretical way. We’re going to build superhuman machines, says Harris, but we haven’t yet grappled with the problems associated with creating something that may treat us the way we treat ants.” (ted.com)
A provocative & intense Ted talk.
2. Cataract Surgery – Uday Devgan MD – 1121: how it started… how it’s going… Great pearls.
3. Andrew Lee MD – Post operative vision loss (POVL).
Dr. Lee’s neuro-ophthalmology reviews are perfect for lifelong learning.
4. Episode 3: Why Mental Models with Sanjay Bakshi — Shane writes, “In this episode, I chat with professor and value investing genius Sanjay Bakshi about the power of mental models, multidisciplinary thinking, reading, and acquiring worldly wisdom.”
This is the second time I’ve listened to this episode. An intellectual jam session.
