Podcast: The Amateur Society – The Divergent Worlds Of Artificial Intelligence – 12.04.2017

NeuralNetworks

Tonight we are moving back into the realm of technology to again cover what’s happening in the field of artificial intelligence. First, let’s try to unpack what we actually mean when we use that term. Second, let’s look at some real world happenings and forecasts in this critical area of technology and life. Last, let’s examine what our worldviews have to say about the topic. There is a great deal of nuance and complexity in this subject, so we’re going to have a non-technical, high level conversation so that all can participate.

Podcast: The Amateur Society – Historical Uncertainty And The Future – 09.19.2017

RosettaStone

I attended the True Legends conference this past weekend, and it struck me that we don’t ask the right questions about history. This vast detriment creates a profound level of uncertainty and ignorance that leads to powerlessness. What proportion of our knowledge about history is accurate? How much are we missing? How could we even estimate the size of the gaps in our understanding of both natural and human history?

August has been a busy month of travel, celebration, and relaxation. Geopolitical and financial events have continued to swirl. The tempest continues to stir. I’ll be commenting more on these topics in upcoming episodes of The Amateur Society and On the Objective, so make sure to check in with the YouTube channel to stay up to date (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYWArNcoTCBRxeoTJWvcc9Q).

I was on The Hagmann Report last month and mentioned that the atmosphere following Charlottesville could have lead to a toxic situation where the debt ceiling and government funding discussions created serious financial friction coming into the fall. Needless to say, that didn’t turn out to be accurate. President Trump crossed the aisle, brought on some Democrats, and got a deal done. Whether you think Trump truly is the master of negotiation, the king of debt, or the head of a captured operation, this move caught many off guard. We’ll see more of its significance as events unfold, but there is certainly more pressure on Congressional Republicans than there has been before. 2018 midterms seem to be the target of this action and others.

Another major item that shouldn’t go unnoticed is the announced and now impending resignation of Stanley Fischer prior to the end of his term as Vice Chair of the Fed. The explanation was vague – “personal reasons” – and many see the timing as indicative since he was due to complete his tenure in that position next summer. This leaves a quadrillion dollar question: why now? Because many have identified Fischer as a crucial decision maker at the Fed, there is now intense speculation as to what his resignation portends. It is a significant event any way you slice it, but whether it implies an imminent shake up still remains to be seen.

There will be time for a more detailed breakdown of the latest outrages, hypocrisies, and blowups, but for now let’s try to avoid some of the distractions and check in with some of our preferred assets.

The Amateur Society: Communication And Antifragile Relationships

Socrates

Amateurs,

Our regular open call will take place tonight, Monday 8/7, at 8:00pm eastern time via Skype. To join in please send us a contact request on Skype by searching for our account name amateursociety. If you have any questions or need clarification, please drop us a line on the contact page here or email us directly at amateursociety@gmail.com. These weekly meetings can be found on Spreaker, YouTube, and on iTunes via the Podcast app.

Communication is absolutely vital, yet how much of our time is dedicated to understanding even the most basic interactions that we have with others and with ourselves? What we have, right here, on a grand scale, is an epic failure to communicate. How tedious and unimportant can our default conversations get? Life is too short to simply remain in first gear of nagging trivialities. Let’s have some real talk about the importance of communication and its role in building antifragile relationships that grow stronger when put under the pressures that life inevitably generates.

Join us for another engaging and informative conversation tonight at 8:00pm!

God bless,

Steven
