Notes on "The Long-Tail Problem in AI, and How Autonomous Markets Can Solve It"
July 27, 2020
For my own mental health I try to limit my VC Twitter exposure, but this article on decentralizing AI by Ali Yaha at Andreessen Horowitz has been making some wider rounds.
Broadly speaking these are subjects I care about as I watch both the moral hypotheticals in AI grow more real and the decentralization tech improve with each passing year. I’ve accepted that this technology is not going away because it’s just too darn useful to nation states and all their various apparatuses.
Folding@Home Setup Notes

I’ll start by saying that Folding@Home is an old project, but it’s seen a resurgence of activity due to COVID. The project anounced at the end of March that the combined computing power had broken the exaflop barrier! For reference, F@H is a distributed computing project where participants donate compute cycles to run protein folding simulations. It sure would be nice to know more about corona’s nasty protein spikes, wouldn’t it?
