Webinar om AI med Olle Häggström
The term AI had not yet been coined in the days of Alan Turing. Nevertheless, he did foresee the field, and in 1951 he famously predicted that machines would eventually become so capable as to surpass human general intelligence, in which case he suggested that "we should have to expect the machines to take control". The (small but growing) research area known as AI Alignment takes this ominous prediction as a starting point, and aims to work out how to instill the AI with goals that lead to a good outcome (for humans) despite their taking control. Attempts to solve AI Alignment lead to many intriguing philosophical and mathematical questions involving, e.g., the notion of embedded agency, and the fundamentals of decision theory.
