AFBE - The maths that can stop an AI apocalypse

27th May 2021 5:00 pm

How do you prevent an AI from taking over the world? In this talk, Dr. Nira Chamberlain discusses how mathematics is providing crucial answers. Mathematical modeling is the most creative side of applied mathematics which itself connects pure maths with science and technology. Mathematical models look into the real world, translate it into mathematics, solve those mathematics and then apply the solution back into the real world.

Looking through a mathematical model of the competition and Dr. Nira will show how the same model can be used to investigate how to minimize the probability of an artificial intelligence takeover. The late great Professor Stephen Hawking once said: “The development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race.”

He also went on to state that he advocated research into precautionary measures to ensure future super-intelligent machines remain under human control. However, the AI apocalypse is not necessarily robots marching down the street, there are a number of examples subtler than this. So what is the risk of AI apocalypse and can we calculate this probability?
