Bryan Johnson & Neural Interfaces | Siraj Raval Podcast #1

886 ratings | 19535 views
On the first episode of my educational podcast, I have a very special guest for you! Bryan Johnson is an entrepreneur and venture capitalist that sold his payments company, Braintree, to Paypal for $800 million. What makes him someone I admire is how he decided to use that amount of wealth to improve human life through Science and technology. He invested $100 million into Kernel, a neuroscience startup that he leads and another $100 million into OS Fund, a venture fund that invests in scientist entrepreneurs. He's also an avid reader, which made for an amazing conversation. We touch on Artificial Intelligence, Science, mathematical mindsets, books, psychedelics, and so much more in this discussion. Enjoy! 0:11 - Intro: Bryan Johnson 4:05 - Book - Zero: The Biography of a Dangerous Idea by Charles Seife 6:50 - Embrace the Weird 9:10 - How do you Read?

Hey Siraj, can you add transcripts somewhere just like how Naval does for his podcasts. It helps me a lot as i like reading the podcasts during the second rerun instead of watching it again as i might find some gems that are missed while watching.
Jenko Raggins (22 days ago)

An advice: make it a third camera, with you and the guest appearing!
You need to make your podcasts longer. At 3x speed, it was over in 20 mins... ;)

At first I thought computer science was all about coding and developing algorithms to solve problems. After enduring siragology, I explore on more about different types of problems and how to solve them. This educational podcasts with AI bigshots is a really wonderful and now I get to know more behind the works of influential people. Thank You Siraj Raval.

Podcasts are fun! I hope it's also available on Pocket Casts app! Also, the camera angle for the person you're interviewing could be more acute so that we could get the shot from front and not just the side view.

i watched Siraj when he was guest at Lex and now he is host, this one is real Siraj with more energetic one or the other one with more low voice and the real one but was hiding it from us for long time :D

What does he mean by “better” I feel like people say that without realizing that some negative nuisances in the short term are adaptive in the long term

Siraj, why is not your YT channel verified by Brave so you can receive BATs (Basic attention tokens)? I guess there are more people that appreciate such a great content and are willing to contribute to you some amount of BAT. IMHO, u are the one that inspired some of us to explore dAPPs :-)

Dan Frederiksen (1 month ago)
Siraj, DMT can show us there is more or reaffirm that consciousness is something profound but if you study the specifics and users of it, they don't come up with any new insight. It takes away the scaffold of our current existence and puts you in chaos which you are sorely not prepared for. So DMT doesn't provide answers. It's a dead end. But we are offered answers through other channels if you pursue it. Simply honestly declaring a wish to know more and be wiser is very powerful. Seek and you shall find. Ask and you shall receive.

Awesome video siraj, audio is a little echo, please add some sound absorbing material in the studio, just two cents from my side.
Dan Frederiksen (1 month ago)
0 clashed with christianity?? smh. The bible starts with describing a void before God made the universe and a passage says "No one is righteous—not even one" so of course the concept of null was there and it's ironically an irrational cognitive bias against christianity to make the absurd claim that christianity was against zero. But the notation for numbers using 0 is not present in the bible afaik. That supposedly came around in the 2nd century.

This is so cool. I wish that there was more information about Kernel!

You take inspirations from many things and have the attitude, why can't I? After participating in a podcast where you were the interviewee ,you have started becoming a interviewer. Don't need to say it, but, Keep us inspiring. Thanks for your time and energy.

This was mind blowing and also amazing to relate to Siraj and Bryan , I loved the concept of causation and correlation , Emergence and to understand human , so many topics which they talked about . I'm glad I'm blessed to understand whats been discussed in this pod cast. It just left me in better state than I was before I watched this.

37:30 Self care. I think everybody should treat himself in a healthy way and make it ones biggest mission. Since Bryan Johnson said he would treat himself with enough sleep, I can only recommend yourself doing that too, because most people really underestimate the power of sleep. I just read a book from a sleep scientist (Matthew Walker) called "Why we sleep", which explains it very well. It's super easily written and comprehensable. Most part he taks about some experiments on rats and humans and the intense effects it has on your brain (hippocampus, prefrontal cortex, to be more precise memory retention and stuff like performance, but also diseases like Amyloidosis, if I am correct, which by the way is pretty much determined if you don't have enough sleep. Amyloid proteins aggregate in your brain on a constant rate and they can only be degraded with enough sleep.. I hope I said this right. Worth checking out tho!). Recommend you all reading it or at least taking it's content from somewhere on the internet.

This is probably one of the most insightful podcasts I've ever listened to. I usually get to a saturation point with hour-long talks. But this one really forced me brain to get going and actually process each and every line of this conversation. I have lost count of the number of times I had to rewind it in order to fully grasp the content! To be frank, I have been watching your videos for quite a while. Dare I say that this is by far one of the best! Please do continue with this series. Cheers!

Great production. This being the internet I have suggestions that nobody asked for. Get another camera that shows both of you at once. I would have loved a shot of him when you just uttered his name in the introduction. Match the zoom you have on your shot, with the guest's shot.
