How to stop robots from taking over? We’ll need an AI kill switch.

The old sci-fi trope of technology taking control away from human beings may one day present a real threat, prompting scientists today to develop a kill switch for artificial intelligence. Laurent Orseau, from Google DeepMind, and Stuart Armstrong, from the Future of Humanity Institute at the University of Oxford, have published a new paper on how future intelligent machines could be prevented from learning to override human input, ensuring that humans will always stay in charge of machines.”It is sane to be concerned – but, currently, the state of our knowledge doesn’t require us to be worried” Dr. Orseau told the BBC. “It is important to start working on AI [artificial intelligence] safety before any problem arises. AI safety is about making sure learning algorithms work the way we want…
