Future of AI: Humans Try to Curb Robot Dominance

As a Democratic senator drafts a bill to look into artificial intelligence policy, Elon Musk and Google teach machines human judgment in order to avoid the robot apocalypse. Musk, owner of Tesla, teamed up with Google’s OpenAI team to allow AI systems to learn tasks from humans, rather than figuring out a task on their own, which makes the machines less unpredictable. Musk has always been skeptical about the safety of AI technology, calling it “summoning the demon.” In the past, AI software has learned the right way to accomplish tasks by getting positive or negative reinforcement from computers. The AI system would learn that the best way to get something done is the route that gets the most positive reinforcement. This gets complicated quickly, when a task requires multiple steps. Musk and Google are working on reinforcement software that derives input from humans instead of computers. Sen. Maria Cantwell, D-Wash., circulated a draft of a bill this week that would create a committee that would discuss AI issues. This draft doesn’t offer any specific policy or action. The AI advisory committee would report to the secretary of Commerce and would consider questions including whether machines will replace more workers…
