Artificial Intelligence and the Problem of Control

In this groundbreaking book, Stuart Russell explores the problem of aligning AI with humanity’s objectives and values. He also outlines a new approach to artificial intelligence that will allow us to reap the benefits of automation without suffering its worst potential consequences. “If machines are more intelligent than humans, then giving them the wrong objective would basically be setting up a kind of a chess match between humanity and a machine that has an objective that’s across purposes with our own,” says Russell. “And we wouldn’t win that chess match. So I started thinking about how to solve that problem.”
