Part 2 of our interview with Stuart Russell, OBE, 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. You may know him as the BBC's 2021 Reith Lecturer on artificial intelligence. Stuart is a prominent voice in the public debate about AI risk and the spokesperson for the viral video Slaughterbots commentary on lethal autonomous weapons. This week we talk about what it means for an AI to understand something – or not; reasoning chains; and exciting new research into artificial general intelligence.
All this plus our usual look at today's AI headlines.
