Google, Oxford Researchers Study Way to Stop AI Systems From Misbehaving

Intelligent systems of the future may not always behave optimally, so a way to safely interrupt them is needed, the Google and Oxford University researchers say. Researchers from Google’s DeepMind group and at the University of Oxford are collaborating on a project to develop what amounts to a kill switch for preventing artificial intelligence systems from going rogue, like the iconic HAL 9000 system in “2001: A Space Odyssey.”A paper, titled “Safely Interruptible Agents,” describing the effort will be presented at the upcoming Conference on Uncertainty in Artificial Intelligence in New York later this month.The paper, according to its authors Laurent Orseau from Google and Stuart Armstrong from Oxford University, explores a method for ensuring that super-intelligent artificial intelligence (AI) systems of the future will not be capable of learning…
