Google’s AI Researchers Outline Key Problems for Robot Safety

Google’s artificial intelligence researchers highlight issues in robot safety. The tech giant has laid out some unsolved challenges that need to be dealt with if smart machines such as household robots are to be safe. The team has come up with practical research problems they think programmers have to factor in before they start creating another AI system. MIT Technology Review notes that the question of whether computers could become so powerful and intelligent that they pose a threat to humanity or human life has become fashionable in some parts of Silicon Valley. The Mountain View Internet giant is however, not worried that AI will become sentient and take over the world, but that, a helpful domestic robot might accidentally skewer its owner with a knife.
