What this is

Edit: this is now a general index for agent-foundations-related decision theory research. It is most-recent-first. I’ll add summaries for other posts if anyone wants.

Open problem: very thin logical priors

An open problem relevant to decision theory and to understanding bounded reasoning: is there a very easily computable prior over logical facts that, when updated on the results of computations, performs well in some sense?

Training Garrabrant inductors to predict counterfactuals

A proposal for training UGIs to predict action- and policy-counterfactuals by learning from the consequences of actions taken by similar (“logically previous”) agents.

Desiderata for decision theory

A list of desiderata for a theory of optimal decision-making for bounded rational agents in general environments.

Notation for induction and decision theory

A reference for notation that might be useful for using (universal) Garrabrant inductors as models for bounded reasoning, and some notation for modelling agents. (Not on the forum because tables.)
