Artificial Intelligence: Google Outlines Five Key Safety Problems For Cleaning Robots Gone Rogue

Just a few weeks back, scientists at Google’s artificial intelligence division DeepMind announced they were developing a “kill switch” to ensure that intelligent machines do not go all Terminator on us. Now, it seems, Google’s AI-related concerns are a bit less dire and a bit more mundane. Right now, Google is not worried that an AI would suddenly become sentient and begin its nefarious plans to take over the world (à la Skynet). It is, however, worried whether the helpful house robot you bought would clean your house without, say, burning it down by sticking a wet mop in an electric socket. In order to address these worries — or at least put them out there — Google’s computer scientists have now published a paper titled “Concrete Problems in AI Safety.”…
