  • Grant-winner talk: Owen Cotton-Barratt (GPP) ( pdf )
  • Panel with Daniela Rus (MIT), Andrew Ng (Baidu), Mustafa Suleyman (DeepMind), Moshe Vardi (Rice) & Peter Norvig (Google): How AI is automating and augmenting work
  • Honoring the FrieNDA for the conference, we are only posting videos and slides below with approval of the speaker.
  • In our sequel to the 2015 Puerto Rico AI conference, we brought together an amazing group of AI researchers from academia and industry, and thought leaders in economics, law, ethics, and philosophy for five days dedicated to beneficial AI.
  • Panel with Anna Salamon (CFAR) & Paul Christiano (MIRI): Educating and mentoring AI safety researchers (Moderator: Andrew Critch)

In our sequel to the 2015 Puerto Rico AI conference, we brought together an amazing group of AI researchers from academia and industry, and thought leaders in economics, law, ethics, and philosophy for five days dedicated to beneficial AI. We hosted a two-day workshop for our grant recipients to give them an opportunity to highlight and discuss the progress with their grants. We followed that with a 2.5-day conference, in which people from various AI-related fields hashed out opportunities and challenges related to the future of AI and steps we can take to ensure that the technology is beneficial. Honoring the FrieNDA for the conference, we are only posting videos and slides below with approval of the speaker. Learn more about the Asilomar AI Principles that resulted from the conference and the process involved in developing them. (It looks like we’ll be posting almost everything, but please be patient while we finish editing and uploading videos, etc.)
