Google working on ‘kill switch’ to prevent robot uprising

Those concerned about a robot uprising in the future may be able to rest a little easier, as Google is working on a “kill switch” to prevent robots from turning on their masters. While Google continues to create more intuitive artificial intelligence (AI) systems, and repeatedly shows us just why robots might turn on humanity, the tech giant has published a new paper detailing the development of “Safely Interruptible Agents” to prevent robots from doing things that they shouldn’t. AI allows robots to learn from their own experiences. Researchers acknowledge that as they develop and learn, “it’s unlikely for AI agents to behave in an optimal manner all the time, especially in the real world interaction.” The paper outlines algorithms developed by Google’s DeepMind team, which also created the company’s AlphaGo computer, saying…
