Does the Parasite use Machine Learning/Artificial Intelligence to learn from mistakes and get smarter over time? Should it? @danielhassan

Great question :smile:

The Parasite does not employ machine learning.

New algorithms are in R&D phase, which would employ ML.

@bierlingm do you have experience with this?

I don’t, but I’m about to investigate this area since we are launching a 5-day AI/ML symposium for Thanksgiving. I asked for one because I would have loved to bring somebody from RH to the symposium as an expert, had the Parasite used ML. This way RH could gain great exposure, in popular perception and with experts. We have Nell Watson confirmed and are likely going to have Eliezer Yudkowski of Less Wrong and MIRI there as well.

Let me know if you know or are somebody working in the field.

We do have people working within those fields within the robin hood ecosystem (though as I mention the Parasite itself does not employ these systems/techniques)

The symposium sounds very exciting all the same. Where will it be based?

In Chile, at the Exosphere HQ.
