The Physics of Sentience

@Susan Hasty shared this AMAZING video with me. It’s breadth made my head explode. (And @Phil Tetlow, your head will be toast too). It bridges from the completely computer science topic of (Bayesian) Probabilistic Graphical Models and Markov Blankets, through entropy from physics, through a passing reference to machine learning’s gradient descent, and all the way to how we human’s understand (construct???) the world around us. My head is swimming.

You’ll need to be fully awake when you listen to this, but it is definitely worth it.

Let me know what you guys think about this? Which way is your head spinning?
