causation & natural laws

dificultades lgicas siempre que intentamos definir el concepto de causalidad como un enunciado que afirma que existen leyes naturales (Schlick 2002, p. 69).

En el libro (comprado en eBook) From Matter to Life: Information and Causality, se busca explicar la emergencia de complejidad sin apelar a layes naturales,
mediante la constructor theory (ver ms adelante)

En sentido contrario piensa Richard Swinburne, editor de Space, Time and Causality [
Conferences/dp/9400969686/ref=sr_1_6?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1500653089&sr=1-6&keywords=space+time+and+causality], que sugiere que la existencia de leyes
naturales y el hecho de que de la aplicacin de tales leyes surja la evolucin hasta los seres humanos y la aparicin de la consciencia, hace posible considerar la
existencia de Dios como probable.

causation & neural networks

The extreme case of model interpretability is when we are trying to establish a mechanistic model, that is, a model that actually captures the phenomena behind the
data. Good examples include trying to guess whether two molecules (e.g. drugs, proteins, nucleic acids, etc.) interact in a particular cellular environment or
hypothesizing how a particular marketing strategy is having an actual effect on sales. Nothing really beats old-style Bayesian methods informed by expert opinion in
this realm; they are our best (if imperfect) way we have to represent and infer causality. Vicarious has some nice recent work [
schemas.pdf] illustrating why this more principled approach generalizes better than deep learning in videogame tasks. []

constructor theory

Constructor theory (Deutsch, 2013) is a new mode of explanation in fundamental physics, intended to improve on the currently most fundamental theories of physics
and explain more of physical reality. Its central idea is to formulate all laws of physics as statements about what transformations are possible, what are impossible, and
why. This is a sharp departure from what I call the prevailing conception of fundamental physics, which formulates its statements exclusively in terms of predictions
given the initial conditions and the laws of motion. For instance, the prevailing conception of fundamental physics aims at predicting where a comet goes, given its
initial conditions and the laws of motion of the universe; instead, in constructor theory the fundamental statements are about where the comet could be made to go,
with given resources, under the dynamical laws.

This constructor-theoretic, task-based formulation of science makes new conceptual tools available in fundamental physics, which resort to counterfactual statements
(i.e., about possible and impossible tasks). This has the potential to incorporate exactly into fundamental physics notions that have so far been considered as highly
approximate and emergent such as information and life.

The constructor theory of information (Deutsch and Marletto, 2015) has accommodated the notion of (classical) information within fundamental physics and has
unified it exactly with what currently goes under the name of quantum information the kind of information that is deemed to be instantiated in quantum systems.
This theory provides the conceptual basis for the constructor theory of life (Marletto, 2015a). Here constructor theory is applied to produce the explanation of how
certain physical transformations that are fundamental to the theory of evolution by natural selection such as accurate replication and self-reproduction are
compatible with laws of physics that do not contain the design of biological adaptation. It also shows what features such laws must have for this to be possible: in
short, they must allow the existence of information media, as rigorously defined in the constructor theory of information.

Before going into the details of these theories, one has to introduce the foundations of constructor theory. Constructor theory consists of laws about laws: its laws
are principles conjectured laws of nature, such as the principle of conservation of energy.

constructor theory of information

We present a theory of information expressed solely in terms of which transformations of physical systems are possible and which are impossible - i.e. in constructor-
theoretic terms. Although it includes conjectured laws of physics that are directly about information, independently of the details of particular physical instantiations, it
does not regard information as an a priori mathematical or logical concept, but as something whose nature and properties are determined by the laws of physics alone.
It does not suffer from the circularity at the foundations of existing information theory (namely that information and distinguishability are each defined in terms of the
other). It explains the relationship between classical and quantum information, and reveals the single, constructor-theoretic property underlying the most distinctive
phenomena associated with the latter, including the lack of in-principle distinguishability of some states, the impossibility of cloning, the existence of pairs of variables
that cannot simultaneously have sharp values, the fact that measurement processes can be both deterministic and unpredictable, the irreducible perturbation caused by
measurement, and entanglement (locally inaccessible information).

the hard problem of life

Chalmer's famously identified pinpointing an explanation for our subjective experience as the hard problem of consciousness. He argued that subjective experience
constitutes a hard problem in the sense that its explanation will ultimately require new physical laws or principles. Here, we propose a corresponding hard problem
of life as the problem of how `information' can affect the world. In this essay we motivate both why the problem of information as a causal agent is central to
explaining life, and why it is hard - that is, why we suspect that a full resolution of the hard problem of life will, similar to as has been proposed for the hard problem
of consciousness, ultimately not be reducible to known physical principles.
