  • Eric Horvitz has provided initial funding for a 100-year Stanford program to study the social impacts of artificial intelligence. The white paper lists 18 example research areas, two of which amount to what Nick Bostrom calls the superintelligence control problem, MIRI’s research focus. No word yet on how soon anyone funded through this program will study open questions relevant to superintelligence control.

As always, please don’t hesitate to let us know if you have any questions or comments.
