DATAIA seminar - Stuart Russell - Provably Beneficial Artificial Intelligence
Provably Beneficial Artificial Intelligence
I will briefly survey recent and expected developments in AI and their implications. Beyond these, one must expect that AI capabilities will eventually exceed those of humans across a range of real-world-decision making scenarios. Should this be a cause for concern, as Elon Musk, Stephen Hawking, and others have suggested? And, if so, what can we do about it? While some in the mainstream AI community dismiss the issue, I will argue instead that a fundamental reorientation of the field is required. Instead of building systems that optimize arbitrary objectives, we need to learn how to build systems that will, in fact, be beneficial for us. I will show that it is useful to imbue systems with explicit uncertainty concerning the true objectives of the humans they are designed to help, as well as the ability to learn more about those objectives from observation of human behavior.
