Google DeepMind Researchers Develop #AI Kill Switch

  • If a machine can learn based on real-world inputs and adjust its behaviors there exists the potential for that machine to learn the wrong thing.

  • A catch with reinforcement learning is that human programmers might not always anticipate every possible way there is to reach a given reward.
  • Corrigible AI agents recognize that they are fundamentally flawed or actively under-development and, as such, treat any human intervention as a neutral thing for any reward function.
