Artificial Intelligence: The Challenge to Keep It Safe

Safety Principle: AI systems should be safe and secure throughout their operational lifetime and verifiably so where applicable and feasible.

Whatever the latest generation of any technology happens to be — from appliances to airplanes — manufacturers know that customers expect their products to be safe from start to finish.

Meanwhile, the Tesla car accident, in which the vehicle mistook a white truck for a clear sky, offers an example of an AI misunderstanding its surrounding and taking deadly action as a result.

“If we can design a method that prevents even a malicious attacker from causing an AI to take an undesirable action, then it is even less likely that the AI would choose an undesirable action independently.” AI safety may be a challenge, but there’s no reason to believe it’s insurmountable.

… ‘Throughout their operational lifetime’ is actually the more important part of the sentence, because that’s about sustainability and longevity.” But then, he added, “My favorite part of the sentence is ‘and verifiably so.’ That is critical.

Because that means, even if you and I don’t agree on what ‘safe and secure’ means, but we do agree on verifiability, then you can go, ‘well, here’s my certification, here’s my checklist.’ And I can go, ‘Great, thanks.’ I can look at it, and say, ‘oh, I see you got things 1-10, but what about 11-15?’ Verifiably is a critical part of that sentence.” AI researcher Susan Craw noted that the Principle “is linked to transparency.” She explained, “Maybe ‘verifiably so’ would be possible with systems if they were a bit more transparent about how they were doing things.” Greene also noted the complexity and challenge presented by the Principle when he suggested: “It depends what you mean by ‘verifiably.’ Does ‘verifiably’ mean mathematically, logically proven?

If you’re talking about a small risk of a catastrophic outcome, maybe that’s not good enough.” Safety and Value Alignment Any consideration of AI safety must also include value alignment: how can we design artificial intelligence that can align with the global diversity of human values, especially taking into account that, often, what we ask for is not necessarily what we want?

but again, I think safety also means policy and norm-setting.” And the value-alignment problem becomes even more of a safety issue as the artificial intelligence gets closer to meeting — and exceeding — human intelligence.

Havens also requested “words that further explain ‘safe and secure,’” suggesting that we need to expand the definition beyond “physically safe” to “provide increased well being.” Anca Dragan, an associate professor at UC Berkeley, was particularly interested in the definition of “safe.” “We all agree that we want our systems to be safe,” said Dragan.

Why AI Safety? - Machine Intelligence Research Institute

Unless we put in an (enormous, multi-generational) effort to teach AI systems every detail of our collective values (to the extent there is overlap), realistic systems will need to rely on imperfect approximations and proxies for what we want (Soares, Yudkowsky).

Alignment research can involve developing formal and theoretical tools for building and understanding AI systems that are stable and robust (“high reliability”), finding ways to get better approximations of our values in AI systems (“value specification”), and reducing the risks from systems that aren’t perfectly reliable or value-specified (“error tolerance”).

Loosely speaking, we can imagine the space of all smarter-than-human AI systems as an extremely wide and heterogeneous space, in which “alignable AI designs” is a small and narrow target (and “aligned AI designs” smaller and narrower still).

In practice, this usually involves focusing on the biggest gaps in our current theories, in the hope of developing better and more general theories to undergird subsequent engineering work (Soares).

Finally, we also usually avoid problems we think academic and industry researchers are well-positioned to address, focusing instead on what we expect to be the most neglected lines of research going forward (Bensinger).

Conditional on a good outcome, though, we put a fair amount of probability on scenarios that more or less follow the following sketch: In the short term, a research community coalesces, develops a good in-principle understanding of what the relevant problems are, and produces formal tools for tackling these problems.

AI researchers move toward a minimal consensus about best practices, more open discussions of AI’s long-term social impact, a risk-conscious security mindset (Muehlhauser), and work on error tolerance and value specification.

As we move toward a clearer sense of what smarter-than-human AI systems are likely to look like — something closer to a credible roadmap — we imagine the research community moving toward increased coordination and cooperation in order to discourage race dynamics (Soares).

In the long term, we would like to see AI-empowered projects used to avert major AI mishaps while humanity works towards the requisite scientific and institutional maturity for making lasting decisions about the far future (Dewey).

For this purpose, we’d want to solve a weak version of the alignment problem for limited AI systems — systems just capable enough to serve as useful levers for preventing AI accidents and misuse.

2) Research Funding: Investments in AI should be accompanied by funding for research on ensuring its beneficial use, including thorny questions in computer science, economics, law, ethics, and social studies, such as: How can we make future AI systems highly robust, so that they do what we want without malfunctioning or getting hacked?
