Google Is Developing an AI Kill Switch

MojoKid shares a HotHardware article about Google’s research effort “to maintain control of super-intelligent AI agents”:
[A] team of researchers at Google-owned DeepMind, along with University of Oxford scientists, are developing a proverbial kill switch for AI… The team has released a white paper on the topic called “Safely Interruptible Agents.” The paper details the following in abstract: “Learning agents interacting with a complex environment like the real world are unlikely to behave optimally all the time… now and then it may be necessary for a human operator to press the big red button to prevent the agent from continuing a harmful sequence of actions…”

MojoKid adds that the paper “goes on to explain that these AI agents might also learn to disable the kill switch and further explores ways in which to develop AI’s that would not seek such an activity.”
