This week Dr. Tim Scarfe, Dr. Keith Duggar and Yannic "Lightspeed" Kilcher respond to the "Algoshambles" exam fiasco in the UK where the government were forced to step in to standardise the grades which were grossly inflated by the schools.  The schools and teachers are all paid on metrics related to the grades received by students, what could possibly go wrong?! The result is that we end up with grades which have lost all their value and students are coached for the exams and don't actually learn the subject.   We also cover the second Francois Chollet interview on the Lex Fridman podcast. We cover GPT-3, Neuralink, and discussion of intelligence.
