June gwern.net newsletter

June 2020 gwern.net newsletter with 3 new pages/essays, and links on CRISPR, population screening, AI scaling, politics, and technological unemployment.

This is the June 2020 edition of the gwern.net newsletter; previous, May 2020 (archives). This is a summary of the revision-history RSS feed, overlapping with my Changelog & /r/gwern; brought to you by my donors on Patreon.

Substack readers: This issue may be cut off due to length, or the auto-text version unreadable. I can fix neither; Substack has been informed but has no estimate of timelines for fixes. If you run into any problems, please read the web version, which is always the canonical version.
