Research paper looks at safety issues of artificial intelligence

There’s been much talk about how artificial intelligence will benefit society, but what about the potential impacts that AI has when the system is poorly designed and creates problems? This is a question several researchers and OpenAI, a non-profit artificial intelligence research company, tackled in a recent paper. The paper was written by researchers from Google Brain, Stanford University and the University of California, Berkeley, as well as John Schulman, research scientist at OpenAI. It’s titled Concrete Problems in AI Safety, and it looks at research problems around ensuring that modern machine learning systems operate as intended. Researchers have started to focus on safety research in the machine learning community, including a recent paper from DeepMind and the Future of Humanity Institute that looked at how to make sure that…
