The history of robotics and artificial intelligence (AI) in many ways is also the history of humanity’s attempts to control such technologies. From the Golem of Prague to the military robots of modernity, the debate continues as to what degree of independence such entities should have and how to make sure that they do not turn on us, their inventors. Numerous recent advancements in all aspects of research on and the development and deployment of intelligent systems are well publicized, but safety and security issues related to AI are insufficiently addressed. This Special Issue is intended to mitigate this fundamental problem. It will be comprised of papers from leading AI Safety researchers addressing different aspects of the AI control problem as it relates to the development of safe and secure artificial intelligence and philosophical issues around this topic. We solicit papers ranging from near-term issues like bias, transparency, and fairness to long-term concerns such as value alignment, controllability, predictability, and explainability of superintelligent systems. We also welcome manuscripts on non-traditional and contrarian views of AI safety and security.
We invite the submission of contributions on any aspect of AI safety and security, including:
- adversarial machine learning (ML)
- AI failures
- bad actors/malevolence
- friendliness theory
- reward engineering
- value alignment
