How To Slow Down Time and Live Longer
"So the brain uses a few tricks in order to keep you sane. And the best way to sum up its approach to its approach to things is this:

To focus on the novel and important-seeming things, and mostly ignore everything else."

How To Slow Down Time and Live Longer
"And there is some real science that connects a Mustachian Early Retirement to a life that feels much longer and more full, even before we get into the reasons you will probably literally live quite a bit longer as well. The key to this is in the way we perceive the passage of time."

How To Slow Down Time and Live Longer
"So an average person might go through routines like …

“get out of bed”
“make some coffee and breakfast”
“get dressed up and drive to work”
… in an almost unconscious fashion.

Habits like these are convenient, but they can also compromise your full enjoyment of life. Because when you are running on autopilot, you are not forming nearly as many meaningful memories. And if you do it long enough, your brain will also start clumping entire phases of your life into individual thoughts:

“my childhood”
“high school”
“the college years”
“those years I worked in Des Moines as a fertilizer salesman”
“the baby-raising years”
“my 25 year career as a Middle Manager in Megacorp”
“my golf-and-TV retirement to a Florida condo”"

"When something is new or more emotional, the amygdala seems to kick into overdrive, recording every last detail of the experience. The more detailed the memory, the longer the moment seems to last. “This explains why we think that time speeds up when we grow older,” Eagleman said—why childhood summers seem to go on forever, while old age slips by while we’re dozing. The more familiar the world becomes, the less information your brain writes down, and the more quickly time seems to pass.”"

"If you look back at your own phases so far, which ones do you remember being the longest and most vibrant?

For most of us, it ends up being the ages from about 6 through 21, because these were the times of greatest change, learning, and new firsts in life. Then as we get older, we lock ourselves into family and work routines, including the most time-compressing of all: a multi-decade period of having the same house and the same career. The years go by, but significant new experiences become more and more rare."

Why are Machine Learning Projects so Hard to Manage?
"Much more pernicious are the subtle differences that lead to degraded performance that are hard to spot. Language models trained on the New York Times don’t generalize well to social media texts. We might expect that. But apparently, models trained on text from 2017 experience degraded performance on text written in 2018. Upstream distributions shift over time in lots of ways."

Why are Machine Learning Projects so Hard to Manage?
"2. Get something working end-to-end right away, then improve one thing at a time.
Start with the simplest thing that might work and get it deployed. You will learn a ton from doing this. Additional complexity at any stage in the process always improves models in research papers but it seldom improves models in the real world. Justify every additional piece of complexity.

Getting something into the hands of the end user helps you get an early read on how well the model is likely to work and it can bring up crucial issues like a disagreement between what the model is optimizing and what the end user wants. It also may make you reassess the kind of training data you are collecting. It’s much better to discover those issues quickly."

Why are Machine Learning Projects so Hard to Manage?
"1. Pay a lot of attention to your training data.
Look at the cases where the algorithm is misclassifying data that it was trained on. These are almost always mislabels or strange edge cases. Either way you really want to know about them. Make everyone working on building models look at the training data and label some of the training data themselves. For many use cases, it’s very unlikely that a model will do better than the rate at which two independent humans agree."

The most powerful person in Silicon Valley
"Son aimed its lens at a picture hanging on the wall, a portrait of a man who looked like a Japanese samurai from long ago. He then handed the camera back to Grannan without explanation. Later, Grannan, feeling that it might be significant, looked up the image. The subject was Sakamoto Ryoma, a famous ronin adventurer who rose from humble beginnings to overthrow the feudal shoguns of the Tokogawa era and launch Japan into the modern age. He is Son’s childhood hero. “Every morning when I come to work, it reminds me to make a decision worthy of Ryoma,” Son once told an audience. “Ryoma was the starting point in my life.”"

"We can go to Berlin,” Tanner says, tapping another monitor. He’s now using Field Lens, project-management software that WeWork acquired in 2017. Field Lens helps WeWork track building construction and maintenance. A live image appears. Zooming in, Tanner shows me how the system can pick up granular details about a site. We’re 4,000 miles away, but I see a nail sticking up from a floorboard. “We’ll have to get someone to fix that,” he says nonchalantly."

"WeWork’s potential lies in what might happen when you apply AI to the environment where most of us spend the majority of our waking hours. I head down one floor to meet Mark Tanner, a WeWork product manager, who shows me a proprietary software system that the company has built to manage the 335 locations it now operates around the world. He starts by pulling up an aerial view of the WeWork floor I had just visited. My movements, from the moment I stepped off the elevator, have been monitored and captured by a sophisticated system of sensors that live under tables, above couches, and so forth. It’s part of a pilot that WeWork is testing to explore how people move through their workday. The machines pick up all kinds of details, which WeWork then uses to adjust everything from design to hiring. For example, sensors installed near this office’s main-floor self-serve coffee station helped WeWork discern that the morning lines were too long, so they added a barista. The larger conference rooms rarely got filled to capacity–often just two or three people would use rooms designed for 20–so the company is refashioning some spaces for smaller groups. (WeWork executives assure me that “the sensors do not capture personal identifiable information.”)"

AI and Compute
"We're releasing an analysis showing that since 2012, the amount of compute used in the largest AI training runs has been increasing exponentially with a 3.5 month-doubling time (by comparison, Moore's Law had an 18-month doubling period). Since 2012, this metric has grown by more than 300,000x (an 18-month doubling period would yield only a 12x increase). Improvements in compute have been a key component of AI progress, so as long as this trend continues, it's worth preparing for the implications of systems far outside today's capabilities."

You Underestimate the Power of the Dark Folgezettel
"However, this is not the fact. There are two aspects which are overseen here (which I also mention in my talk):

A Folgezettel or a note sequence was not primary used by Luhmann because of physical limitations of small paper where to write notes on. Writing very short notes is a technique itself.
A manual link or reference between two notes is, technically and regarding the context, something different than continuing an idea via Folgezettel (note sequences)."

Cross-connections may come up and your methodological notes about cook books may turn useful later when you write a book about learning in general. (I was thinking about Tim Ferriss’s “4-hour Chef” here, which is a book on cooking as it is a book on learning. He could have published 2 books but apparently didn’t.)"

You figure that the recipes could become a book project on its own already. Adding a note about how cook books are organized makes perfect sense at this point to systematically further your knowledge about this new project. You could say this meta-note is very important for planning to write the cook book. But should you have started with that note? Hardly so – before you collected the recipes you didn’t even anticipate you’d end up writing a cook book in the first place!"
