Machine Intelligence Research Institute

Alexander Tamas Initiative

The target of this research initiative is the 'control problem' in A.I. safety: how to create superintelligent systems that could be relied upon to preserve what we value. Projects within its scope include the safe application of superintelligent question-answering systems ('oracles') and methods for designing 'corrigible' superintelligent agents--systems whose behaviors could be corrected at run-time.
