Google highlights five main safety concerns surrounding AI

Safety risks posed by artificial intelligences are a genuine concern, but it’s not just the apocalyptic robot uprising that we need to worry about. More seemingly mundane problems, such as an AI agent knocking over a vase while it’s cleaning, also need to be addressed. Google Research has discussed methods for keeping AI on the straight and narrow in the past, and now the company has released a research paper outlining areas that are minor problems today, but will need more attention as AI technologies become more ubiquitous. The paper, which was a collaboration between scientists at Google, OpenAI, Stanford University and the University of California, Berkeley, focuses on reducing accidents in machine learning systems. The researchers define accidents as “unintended and harmful behavior that may emerge from machine learning…
