Adoption of self-driving, Autonomous Vehicles (AVs) promises to dramatically reduce the number of traffic accidents. But some inevitable accidents will require AVs to make tradeoffs . . . Read more.
Bad Machines Corrupt Good Morals
As machines powered by AI influence humans’ behavior in ways that are both like and unlike the ways humans influence each other, worry emerges about the corrupting power of AI agents . . . Read more.
Cooperating with Machines
We develop state-of-the-art machine-learning algorithms that cooperate with people and other machines at levels that rival human cooperation in two-player repeated games . . . Read more.
