I'm an engineer working on AI.

I'm additionally interested in information theory, security (vulnerabilities, exploits), and trees (the plant kind, not the balanced kind). I am loosely described as a: pragmatist, realist, rationalist (who believes in human agency), empiricist, humanist (as an opposition to the divine, the supernatural, and scholasticism), functionalist (intelligence does not require a soul), simulationist, capitalist, techno optimist, and transhumanist. I think Moravec's Paradox and the Bitter Lesson are two of the most important empirical realizations in AI.
