Keeping AIs in a box

Last week I attended the Philosophy and Theory of Artificial Intelligence Conference in Thessaloniki. Stuart Armstrong gave an excellent little talk based on our paper on whether it is possible to keep super-intelligences nicely in a box, just answering questions and not taking over the world. Earlier this week we re-did our talks here in Oxford, and Stuart has uploaded them to YouTube:

If you are interested in the paper, it can be found here (PDF).

My own talk on the feasibility of whole brain emulation can be seen here. I am not too happy with it - I was a bit unprepared for our re-making so I did not have any of my notes to guide me, so be prepared for a slightly confused talk. The paper in the proceedings will be much clearer, trust me.
