Is he the new NDT? His guests are excellent but when he talks he spews some of the most naive and retarded things. He basically has a monopoly on podcasts with world class thinkers so there's not a lot we can do.

>Is out of his depth in every conversation he has including his own domain, AI/ML

Honestly this. He seems dumber than Joe Rogan on most technical topics.

His questions to the Dave Favor pilot about aircraft were child-like and naïve. I assumed his breadth of knowledge was totally restricted to computer science, but everyone tells me he's a brainlet in those subjects too.

Because he converses with leaders within every one of those fields. Its a small fish big tank syndrome. All you're watching is him talking to people who talk to experts all the time. Thats why your perspective is warped in thinking he knows nothing. I mean he could talk to shitters like you all the time and he'd be like God to you.

I saw Lex Fridman at a grocery store in Los Angeles yesterday. I told him how cool it was to meet him in person, but I didn’t want to be a douche and bother him and ask him for photos or anything.
He said, “Oh, like you’re doing now?”
I was taken aback, and all I could say was “Huh?” but he kept cutting me off and going “huh? huh? huh?” and closing his hand shut in front of my face. I walked away and continued with my shopping, and I heard him chuckle as I walked off. When I came to pay for my stuff up front I saw him trying to walk out the doors with like fifteen Milky Ways in his hands without paying.
The girl at the counter was very nice about it and professional, and was like “Sir, you need to pay for those first.” At first he kept pretending to be tired and not hear her, but eventually turned back around and brought them to the counter.
When she took one of the bars and started scanning it multiple times, he stopped her and told her to scan them each individually “to prevent any electrical infetterence,” and then turned around and winked at me. I don’t even think that’s a word. After she scanned each bar and put them in a bag and started to say the price, he kept interrupting her by

I’m an expert on determining people’s intelligence metrics from their verbal outputs, and can confidently say Lex’s IQ is between 130-145, if not higher. Say what you will, but the man bat’s several standard deviations below his own aptitude to make his repertoire accessible to a wider audience. But I can assure you the man is a certifiable genius, i.e. a savant

He's obviously trying to help a broader spectrum of people understand these stuff, and thus is trying to use simplified terms and words that make him seem "out of depth".
Imagine if he used autistic compsci lingo in each of his interviews. No one would watch him because like 10 people would get the jest of what he's talking about.

>> No.12245739

I think his idiocy balances out his podcasts.
It forces the guests to speak in more clear terms so that his child brain can consume the information successfully.

Imagine if you watch a discussion between two of his guests without lex being present. Things could go out of hand really fast and us plebs would be left behind.
