In a way, it is a similar question to the control problem, but in a much less sinister context—we need a way of telling machines what we want them to do. My collaborators and I are looking at these questions in the context of programming household devices lights and thermostats as well as with robots.
In a previous interview you wrote that P human extinction caused by badly done AI badly done AI is epsilon. You also voiced some skepticism about friendly AI a machine superintelligence that stably optimizes for humane values. In an email you wrote that you believe the main disagreement between you and Nick Bostrom et al.
In you wrote that the probability of a human level artificial general intelligence AGI to self-modify its way up to massive superhuman intelligence in less than 5 years is essentially zero Addendum: Some people would call you overconfident. An overconfident person, to me, would be someone who believes he or she can solve this problem in 5 years.
The development of what we might call massive superhuman intelligence will be an evolutionary process involving changes in the social, physical, and intellectual fabric on which our society is built.
Changes like that take time.
Do you believe that donating money in order to reduce risks associated with artificial intelligence not just extinction type risks might currently be an effective way to accomplish this goal?
As you know, a number of my colleagues including my dissertation advisor and many other colleagues for whom I have tremendous respect signed an open letter hosted by the Future of Life Institute calling for more attention to reducing risks associated with AI.
At that level, I agree wholeheartedly that keeping technologists and scientists tuned in to the societal impacts of their work is exceedingly important.
So, yes, I feel that supporting research on societal impacts of technology—including artificial intelligence—is a good investment for good. How do you think about using e. Or asked more generally, do you think it is possible to work on AGI safety, or a formal definition of it, without researching and advancing AGI at the same time?
At a high level, raising awareness and scoping out possibilities is fine. Scott Phoenix, co-founder of the A. He further wrote that there will be a long iterative process of learning how these systems can be created and the best way to ensure that they are safe. Note that this question pertains whether the initial invention or emergence of AGI will take us by surprise, rather than the speed of its subsequent improvement or self-improvement.

Also, “it starts to look like me and the feminists” should be “looks like I”. And “untitled” doesn’t really make sense.
