The race for general artificial intelligence is rapidly evolving and at GoodAI we believe it is vital that the issue of safety is brought to the top of the agenda.
I am very excited to announce the work of the AI Roadmap Institute, partner organization of GoodAI, which has begun interdisciplinary workshops to help visualize different scenarios of the future with general artificial intelligence.
We have recently held a workshop on AI race avoidance.You can find the outcomes of it in our new blog post here: Avoiding The Precipice: Race Avoidance in the Development of Artificial General Intelligence. I have also summarised the main points below.
General AI Challenge
This post is the beginning of something much bigger! In November 2017 we will launch Round 2 of the General AI Challenge, where participants will search for solutions to ensure that competition among stakeholders does not lead to negligence when it comes to safety.
We will also be running another workshop in October after the AI and Society Symposium in Tokyo.
We hope that the workshop and the next round of the Challenge will open up wider discussions to lots of different questions including:
The Challenge will attempt to solve these problems via citizen science and help to promote the issue of safety in AI to a wider audience.
So stay tuned and prepare to get involved in the new round of the General AI Challenge!
Thank you for reading!
