I’ve never really understood acausal trade. So in a short series of posts, I’ll attempt to analyse the concept sufficiently that I can grasp it - and hopefully so others can grasp it as well.

Cooperative inverse reinforcement learning (CIRL) generated a lot of attention last year, as it seemed to do a good job aligning an agent’s incentives with its human supervisor’s. Notably, it led to an elegant solution to the shutdown problem.
|Infinite ethics comparisons|

Work done with Amanda Askell; the errors are mine.
It’s very difficult to compare utilities across worlds with infinite populations. For instance, it seems clear that world \(w_1\) is better than \(w_2\), if the number indicate the utilities of various agents:
- \(w_1 = 1,0,1,0,1,0,1,0,1,0, \ldots\)
- \(w_2 = 1,0,1,0,0,1,0,0,0,1, \ldots\)
