Edited by Vincent C. MEller

CRC Press


291 pages




European and American researchers working in computer science and other areas provide 12 chapters that examine the risks of artificial intelligence and ways to ensure that artificial intelligence systems will be beneficial to humans. They consider how artificial agents can turn into serious threats to humans; errors, insights, and lessons from famous artificial intelligence predictions; the path to more general artificial intelligence; the limitations and risks of machine ethics; utility function security; an artificial general intelligence meta-architecture enabling goal preservation and radical self-improvement; universal empathy and ethical bias for artificial general intelligence; how artificial intelligence can learn to understand what is moral; the ethics of brain emulations; long-term strategies for mitigating existential risk from fast takeoff to superintelligence; and the need to consider risks such as the military use of artificial intelligence. Most chapters are based on papers given at a conference on the topic held in Oxford, England, in December 2012, published in a subsequent journal volume. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
