Professor of computer science at the University of California, Berkeley Stuart Russell, does an insightful and funny Ted Talk on human compatible AI.
What is it?
How can we harness the power of superintelligent AI while also preventing the catastrophe of robotic takeover? As we move closer to creating all-knowing machines, AI pioneer Stuart Russell is working on something a bit different: robots with uncertainty. Hear his vision for human-compatible AI that can solve problems using common sense, altruism, and other human values.
Why is it interesting?
Because it brings a new perspective to AI. Artificial Intelligence doesn’t have to be this robotic thing that knows only zeroes and ones. There can be something in between. There can be something human in AI. But what are human values? And what are they if there is not such a thing as THE human? And how can an algorithm learn what the values are?
