    #187 - Ben Mezrich on GameStop, Reddit, and The Antisocial Network

    Ben Mezrich is the author of Bringing Down The House, The Accidental Billionaires, and the brand new book The Antisocial Network. Anyone who follows this podcast will know that I have been writing my own book on the GameStop Saga, so before I spoke to Ben and read his book I was a little nervous that he may have beaten me to the punch. Thankfully his book is written like a thriller designed for adaptation to a movie, it’s prose is gripping and packed full of interesting tidbits and great information. This book focuses on what we in the community have come to know as the baby squeeze (or January squeeze). I asked about DFV, whether he believes the shorts have covered, and if he thinks the story is truly over.

    Chatter #186 - Professor Bobby Duffy On Generations And How Humans Change Through The Ages

    Chatter #186 - Professor Bobby Duffy On Generations And How Humans Change Through The Ages

    Bobby is Professor of Public Policy and Director of the Policy Institute. Prior to joining King's in 2018, Bobby was Managing Director of Public Affairs for Ipsos MORI, which is a team of around 250 researchers in London, Manchester, Edinburgh and Brussels, and Global Director of the Ipsos Social Research Institute, across around 30 countries. He has worked across most public policy areas in his career of 25 years in policy research and evaluation, and has been seconded to the Prime Minister's Strategy Unit and the Centre for Analysis of Social Exclusion (CASE) at the LSE. In Generations: Does When You're Born Shape Who You Are?, Bobby Duffy argues we need to drop the stereotypes and focus on more rigorous generational analysis – one of our most powerful tools for understanding how individuals and societies change, and something which is even more important in light of the Covid-19 crisis, a truly generation-shaping event.

    #183 - Jeff Hawkins On The Human Mind And The Thousand Brain Theory Of Intelligence #AI

    #183 - Jeff Hawkins On The Human Mind And The Thousand Brain Theory Of Intelligence #AI

    Jeff Hawkins is the founder of Redwood Center for Theoretical Neuroscience in 2002 and Numenta in 2005. In his 2004 book titled On Intelligence, and in his research before and after, he and his team have worked to reverse-engineer the neocortex and propose artificial intelligence architectures, approaches, and ideas that are inspired by the human brain.
    His previous book, On Intelligence, was an impressive scientific journey into intelligence as a memory-prediction system for experiences and therefore vastly different than a computer. He compared a human brain’s neuron to two machine neurons: a traditional neural network neuron and his version of a more sophisticated one in the form of hierarchical temporal memory (HTM) cells. Almost 20 years later, he takes this earlier HTM concept to a higher plane and has truly established himself as both a formidable teacher and an ardent student of intelligence.
    His latest book, A Thousand Brains: A New Theory of Intelligence, is framed in the construct of how the neocortex represents object compositionally, object behaviors, and higher level concepts. The main premise is that every part of the neocortex learns complete models of objects and concepts, and that there are many such models of each object distributed throughout the neocortex that have long range connections (hence the title of the book).

    #182 - Jamie Curran (AKA Tradespotting) On GameStop, The Apes, And Financial Revolution

    #182 - Jamie Curran (AKA Tradespotting) On GameStop, The Apes, And Financial Revolution

    Jamie is the host of the YouTube channel Tradespotting and has been my most requested guest of all time I believe! He describes himself as a pro trader preaching kindness and teaching self-empowerment. His technical understanding of markets tops anyone I’ve had the opportunity to speak to on this topic and the conversation is a wild ride through memes, revolution, the psychology of traders, his escape from the system, and the ways in which the price of GameStop could be manipulated.
