Tech giant Google to create ‘stop button’ to prevent robots from taking over

With technology developing at a rapid rate, a Google-owned, London-based artificial intelligence research laboratory has developed a “big red button” to stop robots from getting too far ahead of human control. Robots take orders at a cafe in Shanghai, are closer to performing surgery and artificial intelligence (AI) means bots can just about think for themselves, so a recent research paper aims to make sure they can be turned off effectively. DeepMind, a lab bought by Google in 2014, worked with scientists from the University of Oxford’s Future of Humanity Institute to develop “a big red button to prevent the agent from continuing a harmful sequence of actions.” The paper claims researchers have created a way to repeatedly interrupt an AI, while making sure it “will not learn to prevent…
