I've written some stuff. I consider some of it good enough to put here. Note that some of it is published under my old name (Jacob Taylor).
2012: Efficient Inference for Pragmatic Generative Concepts
Some algorithms for approximate and exact inference in pragmatics models that can contain generative concepts.
2012: Dominant Assurance Contracts with Continuous Pledges
I expand on Alexander Tabarrok's work on dominant assurance contracts to analyze the case when pledges can take on any value, not only 2 different values.
2012: Wireheading: Towards a Consumer Market?
The history and ethics of "wireheading" (implanting electrodes in the brain to create pleasure).
2011: Compressionism: A New Theory of the Mind Based on Data Compression
My research-based argument for PWR 1. An analytic philosophy/AI paper on a theory of the mind based on data compression. Essentially, compressionism is based on the idea that finding short but complete descriptions for one's experiences is equivalent to understanding them. I've expanded on the ideas of Ray Solomonoff and Phil and Rebecca Maguire to create a more comprehensive theory of the mind based on this principle and respond to Searle's criticisms of AI. Thanks to my PWR instructor, Michael Reid, for all his help on this paper!
