      document description - Situational Awareness - The Decade Ahead - author - Leopold Aschenbrenner

      summary - Leopold Aschenbrenner is an ex-employee of OpenAI and reveals the insider information of the disruptive plans for AI in the next decade, that pose an existential threat to create a truly dystopian world if we continue going down our BAU trajectory. - The A.I. arms race can end in disaster. The mason threat of A.I. is that humans are fallible and even one bad actor with access to support intelligent A.I. can post an existential threat to everyone - A.I. threat is amplifier by allowing itt to control important processes - and when it is exploited by the military industrial complex, the threat escalates significantly

      question - How to respond when asked what's the point or what's in it for me? - When these questions pop up, - it can be a good opportunity to engage the other in deeper dialogue to reveal deeper complexity

      adjacency - between - questions - what's in it for me? - what's the point? - human attention - progress trap - complexity - emptiness - adjacency relationship - These questions come up a lot - and they indicate a normative human tendency: - When we focus attention on what we consider salient in our dynamic, constructed salience landscape - at the same time it defocuses our attention from the rest of the field the salient feature occurs within - In this sense, overemphasize on these questions could reveal a dependency on oversimplification - of the complexity inherent all every life situation - Remember that emptiness, with its pillars of - intertwingledness and - change - pervades everything, everywhere and everytime - and such continuous oversimplification is tantamount to - ignoring the empty nature of reality and - leads to progress traps

    1. For students and educators alike, it's important to think about academic integrity as a learned concept.

      Academic integrity is a learned concept

    2. Whether in history, social studies, science, or literature, most East Asian students are discouraged from producing original work in an academic setting and instead advised to remember and repeat the ideas of the masters in those subject areas as a form of respect.

      Interesting that individual work is not the goal....

    3. nursing students, for example, are focused on the concept of caring for others and illustrate collectivist culture, in both academic study and clinical practice. It is often natural for nursing students to project caring for patients to helping at-risk cohorts in the form of academic collusion.

      Interesting take on nursing students

    4. Students that grow up with this perspective may not understand why citations at the end of a research paper are important; furthermore, citations might even make them feel uncomfortable, as they recognize individual authors above the community as a whole.

      This is a different view of authorship - elevating 1 above the many

    5. A collectivist culture is one that prioritizes the goals and desires of the whole over the needs of the individual. Often in East Asian countries like South Korea, Japan, and China, ideas that are beneficial to and shared by the community are not individually attributed, but rather recognized as universal knowledge.

      Interesting take on east asian culture. it really makes sense if the collective owns the information - you don't have to cite authorship.

    1. Running Docker inside Docker lets you build images and start containers within an already containerized environment.
    2. If your use case means you absolutely require dind, there is a safer way to deploy it. The modern Sysbox project is a dedicated container runtime that can nest other runtimes without using privileged mode. Sysbox containers become VM-like so they're able to support software that's usually run bare-metal on a physical or virtual machine. This includes Docker and Kubernetes without any special configuration.
    3. Bind mounting your host's daemon socket is safer, more flexible, and just as feature-complete as starting a dind container.
    4. Docker-in-Docker via dind has historically been widely used in CI environments. It means the "inner" containers have a layer of isolation from the host. A single CI runner container supports every pipeline container without polluting the host's Docker daemon.
    5. While it often works, this is fraught with side effects and not the intended use case for dind. It was added to ease the development of Docker itself, not provide end user support for nested Docker installations.
    1. democratic culture is always at risk. It requires an engaged citi-zenry full of informed, critical voters

      evidence?

      We hear this regularly, and it seems intuitive, but... where is the proof of this...

      Just how "informed" ought a person to be? How critical? Everyone is "critical", the internet is full of criticism, but not necessarily in the sense meant here.

      He and others are usually talking about some perceived "perfect democracy" which doesn't really exist in actuality.

      Spring 2024 Member Meeting: CNI website ‱ YouTube

      Beth LaPensee Senior Product Manager ITHAKA

      Kevin Guthrie President ITHAKA

      Starting in mid-2023, ITHAKA began investing in and engaging directly with generative artificial intelligence (AI) in two broad areas: a generative AI research tool on the JSTOR platform and a collaborative research project led by Ithaka S+R. These technologies are so crucial to our futures that working directly with them to learn about their impact, both positive and negative, is extremely important.

      This presentation will share early findings that illustrate the impact and potential of generative AI-powered research based on what JSTOR users are expecting from the tool, how their behavior is changing, and implications for changes in the nature of their work. The findings will be contextualized with the cross-institutional learning and landscape-level research being conducted by Ithaka S+R. By pairing data on user behavior with insights from faculty and campus leaders, the session will share early signals about how this technology-enabled evolution is beginning to take shape.

    1. You may be thinking that these suggestions seem like they are geared toward online or blended learning, but they are not (although it’s true that the strategies can cross modalities). Students are used to having access to information 24/7 and the lines between online, blended, and in-person learning are blurring a bit. Although you might not be delivering instruction online, students like to have online access to their course materials, assignments, grades, etc.

      llms important to students - used to having 24/7 access to course materials, assignments, grades

    2. Clarity is key: Provide crystal-clear instructions for assignments and grading criteria. Avoid confusing instructions. For example, students expressed frustration with assignment details being posted in the LMS but professors requesting submissions via email. Stay in the loop: Communicate with students by offering due dates, announcements, and calendar reminders. Timely and clear feedback on grades on the LMS empower students to track their progress effectively.

    1. Arthur Koestler, author of the 1967 Book “The Ghost in the Machine,” coined the term holarchy as the organizational connections between holons (from the Greek word for "whole"), which describes units that act independently but would not exist without the organization they operate within.
    1. The remaining five principles: using active learning techniques, giving prompt feedback, emphasizing time on task, communicating high expectations, and responding to diverse talents and ways of learning are consistent with the characteristics of the CoI presences.

      7 principles of practice * 1. student-faculty contact in and out of class * 2. peer collaboration to expand understanding * Using active learning techiniques

      • Giving prompt feedback emphasizing time on task communicating high expectations responding to diverse talents and ways of learning
    2. second principle promotes peer collaboration to expand understanding

      2nd principle - peer collaboration

    3. student-faculty contact in and out of classes is the most important factor in student motivation and involvement.  Faculty concern helps students get through rough times and keep on working.  Knowing a few faculty members well enhances students’ intellectual commitment and encourages them to think about their own values and future plans

      Contact outside of the classroom is difficult for both commuters in on-ground courses and online environments. Also it's becoming an issue for traditional students who are working more and more hours to reduce overall costs of education.

    4. Chickering and Gamson (1987) offered Seven Principles for Practice in Higher Education, which have come to be known as the dominant paradigm for developing standards of teaching and learning in higher education.

    1. Doodle poll a week ahead to agree on a time, and I select the most popular times. To run a live session, I require at least four students in attendance. I rotate the times so that all who wish to participate can do so at least once. Students who take part in the live session can skip the discussion board, but the expectations are the same: they must prepare responses to two questions. Live sessions are recorded and posted to the LMS. In some courses we hold a live session every week, while others have just one or two throughout the course.

    1. The Guardian: Die Parteien, die die neue niederlĂ€ndische Rechtsregierung unterstĂŒtzen, haben sich auf ein Arbeitsprogramm geeinigt. Wichtige klimapolitische Maßnahmen werden zurĂŒckgenommen. So soll die Höchstgeschwindigkeit auf Autobahnen wieder 130 km/h betragen; Agrardiesel wird wieder subventioniert. Bei der Installation von WĂ€rmepumpen verzichtet man auf Zielwerte. Es sollen 4 Atomkraftwerke gebaut werden. Was die Regierung durchsetzen kann, ist noch unklar. https://www.theguardian.com/world/article/2024/may/16/new-dutch-coalition-aims-to-reintroduce-80mph-limit-in-cull-of-climate-goals

    1. with higher levels of social presence in discussion postshad statistically significantly higher ratings on written assessmentmeasures. Both of the studies demonstrate that increased socialpresence gives students a stronger sense of community and is ef-fective for improving student learning

      or maybe they are just more engaged with the course, they are putting more into the course.

    2. robust theme in the reasons given for preferringface-to-face delivery formats is the perceived lack of interactionwith an instructor in online courses.This was evident in statementsthat suggested that students believe they would have to “teachthemselves”, or that they would prefer a course taught by a “hu-man” or a “real teacher”.

      need for instructor interaction

    3. Thus, being in the physical presence ofothers might give the illusion of interaction in face-to-face classeswhich presents a challenge for online learning. It is possible thatthe interaction to which students are referring involves mostlythe physical aspect of human interaction. Electronic interaction, nomatter how frequent, may not be filling that aspect of the students’needs for social interaction

      physical presence with others - illusion of interaction

    4. This suggests that students do not view onlinediscussion forums as equivalent to in-class interactions.

      discussion forums

    5. Because students are physically separated from the instructorin an online class, communication and timely responses becomeincreasingly important for students and therefore this physical sep-aration also affects student perceptions of the online learning envi-ronment (Delaney et al., 2010

      Importance of timely feedback in online courses

    1. There is a lot of modeling that goes on especially at the beginning. Meaning that, I respond a lot inopening discussions and the reason is because it sets the tone. The students take over after that. Ifyou sit back in those first two discussions, that also sets the tone,

      • the worry for Goethe and whitehead is that
        • we forget sometimes with the typical scientific method that = we can only ever apply concepts derived from our empirical experience
      • and so if we're trying to understand experience as if it were really
        • an illusion produced by
          • collisions of particles or
          • brain chemistry or
          • something that we can never in principle experience
      • what we're doing is
        • applying concepts derived from our experience
        • to an imagined realm that
          • we think is beyond experience
      • but it's not
      • This is Whitehead's fallacy of misplaced concreteness.

      key insight - Whitehead's fallacy of misplaced concreteness - This helps explain the rising rejection of science from the masses. I didn't realize there was already a name for the phenomena responsible for the emergence of collective denialist behavior

      adjacency - between - fallacy of misplaced concreteness - increasing collective rejection of science in the polycrisis - adjacency statement - Whitehead's fallacy of misplaced concreteness exactly names and describes - the growing trend of a populus rejection of climate science (climate denialism), COVID vaccine denialism, exponential growth of conspiracy theory and misinformation - because of the inability for non-elites and elites alike to concretize abstractions the same way that elite scientists and policy-makers do - Research papers have shown that the knowledge deficit model which was relied upon for decades was not accurate representation of climate denialism - Yet, I would hold that Whitehead's fallacy of misplaced concretism plays a role here - This mistrust in science is rooted in this fallacy as well as progress traps - Deep Humanity is quite steeped in Whitehead's process relational ontology and the fallacy of misplaced concreteness requires mass education for a sustainable transition - This abstract concreteness is everywhere: - Shift from Ptolemy's geocentric worldview to the Copernican heliocentric worldview - Now we are told that the sun is not fixed, but is itself rotating around the Milky Way with billions of other galaxies - scientific techniques like radiocarbon dating for dating objects in deep time - climate science - atomic physics - quantum physics - distrust of vaccines, which we cannot see - Timothy Morton's hyperobjects is related to this fallacy of misplaced concreteness. - "Seeing is believing" but we cannot directly experience the ultra large or ultra small. So we have scientific language that draws parallels to that, but it is not a direct experience. - - Those not steeped in years or decades of science have the very real option of feeling that the concepts are fallacies and don't hold as much weight as that which they can experience directly, even though those concepts have obviously produced artefacts that they use, like cellphones, the internet and airplanes.
