My guest today is Robin Hanson, an associate professor of economics at George Mason University and a research associate at the Future of Humanity Institute of Oxford University. He is known for his work on idea futures and markets, and he was involved in the creation of the Foresight Institute’s Foresight Exchange and DARPA’s FutureMAP project. He invented market scoring rules like LMSR (Logarithmic Market Scoring Rule) used by prediction markets such as Consensus Point (where Hanson is Chief Scientist), and has conducted research on signalling.

The topic is his book The Age of Em: Work, Love and Life when Robots Rule the Earth.

In this episode of Trend Following Radio we discuss:

  • Singularity
  • Robots taking over
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Slavery
  • Reversible computing
  • Virtual reality
  • Future of politics
  • Democracy in the future

“As an economist and a social scientist I often analyze the world as if nobody is in charge. As if it is not a matter of people voting on it, it is a matter of people doing lots of little things in local self interest that end up accumulating into the net effect that we all see.” – Robin Hanson

“All speculative follies go down the same path. The players involved look the same. They act the same. They talk to same. The only thing that is different are the names. It’s always a new technology. It’s always an innovation.” – Michael Covel
