Strategic Artificial Intelligence Research Centre AI Hubs
FHI houses the Strategic AI Research Centre, a joint Oxford-Cambridge initiative developing strategies and tools to ensure artificial intelligence (AI) remains safe and beneficial. The Centre has two primary lines of research, ‘technical’ and ‘strategic.’ The first line of research aims to solve the technical challenges of building AI systems that remain safe even when highly capable. Examples of this kind of research can be found in FHI’s previous work, such as the reinforcement learning approaches used in our recent paper with DeepMind and those used in our collaboration with Stanford. Other ideas for AI safety research are included in research agendas such as Concrete Problems in AI Safety by Google Brain and Aligning superintelligence with human interests: a technical research agenda by the Machine Intelligence Research Institute.
