The Laws of Natural Stupidity
This article is a tongue-in-cheek take on Artificial Intelligence.
I define intelligence as “having the optimal abstractions to think clearly about a specific problem that exists within a particular context.”
I also distinguish between willful stupidity (denial) from natural stupidity (naiveté).
We are always naturally stupid when faced with a new problem.
Understanding the boundaries of an old problem is always a new problem.
There are always more important problems for which we lack optimal abstractions.
The Last Law: The only real barrier to curing others’ stupidity is my own.
I believe these are all true. But I’m not yet intelligent enough to prove them…
