Storyboard Text

  • I'm not so sure
  • Box A contains either $1,000,000 or $0 while Box B contains $1,000! Do you want Box A or both?
  • This guy is so dumb the answer is obvious
  • Box A
  • Box B
  • Does that change your mind?
  • Well since you Box A might be empty, you may as well take both!
  • Keep in mind that are perfectly accurate predictor has already decided the contents of Box A
  • Box A
  • Box B
  • Well the expected value of A is $500,000 whereas both is $501,000
  • Box A
  • Well this is actually a problem called Newcomb's Paradox
  • Box B
  • Box A
  • Box B
  • It states that the predictor knows what you are going to do. If you take both, it will place 0$ in Box B. However if you take just Box A it will put $1,000,000 in it.
  • So that means that you should only take Box A?
  • Box A
  • Box B
  • Well that doesn't make any sense because the expected value of both is greater than that of just Box A!
  • Yes that's correct!
  • Box A
  • Box B
