Is Artificial Intelligence Safe for Humanity?

This is the title of a feature article written by RAD Alumnus, Stefano Albrecht, in the recent issue of EUSci magazine (see pp. 22):

The question is of course much talked about, which several high profile advocates answering yes and no. For me, the most interesting outcome of all these debates is the observation that there is the need for focus “not only on making AI more capable, but also on maximizing the societal benefit of AI” (words taken from an Open Letter drafted by the Future of Life Institute, and signed by many AI researchers including yours truly). From a scientific perspective, even clearly distinguishing between these two objectives is something of an open issue!
