Stuart Russell, professor of AI at UC Berkeley, author of both the standard textbook on AI and the 2019 book Human Compatible: Artificial Intelligence and the Problem of Control is my guest this week. You may know him as the BBC's 2021 Reith Lecturer on artificial intelligence. Queen Elizabeth knows him as a 2021 recipient of the Order of the British Empire. Stuart is a prominent voice in the public side of the AI risk conversation.
So much to talk about! In part 1 we get into the autonomous lethal weapon debate; you may have seen Stuart in his role as activist and spokesperson for the viral video Slaughterbots. We also talk about the public narrative on AI risk and help you make sense of the apparently contradictory positions there.
All this plus our usual look at today's AI headlines.
