I'm fine with going down the route of reducing processing power requirements for S0-2 by 3 orders of magnitude. Just one note. The brain sizes of S2 equivalents for S1 and S2 are consistent with the h...

I've noticed some inconsistencies between the second singularity article, the ultimate chip article, and the toposophic level and brain size article. As far as I understand one of the resident physici...

Hi sorry for not replying for about a half week. Yeah high redundancy works in favor of their record surviving intact while smart matter works against it. I'm sure they would be at least somewhat awar...

I had a project almost a year ago for putting Mormons in the setting because I was interested in writing stories involving them, but I lost interest. Now I'm interested in finishing it so I can finish...

Post: RE: Alternative terms to superbright and superior

Also, I should've definitely clarified that the censuses in question were optional. If compliance is demanded, I agree that no one would disobey over something as little as labeling.

Those are all very good points. The only gripe I have is that when I refer to su supremacism in the draft, I don't refer to superior mental capabilities. In this context su supremacism refers to the b...

One of the notable limitations of ANNs over the last decade has been dependence on extremely high quantities of training data for any good results on a task. One of the reasons for this is that they u...
