Artificial Intelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI) is a field of computer science that focuses on creating machines and software capable of performing tasks that typically require human intelligence, such as learning, problem-solving, and decision-making. AI is both an extension and relinquishment of human power, presenting opportunities for symbiosis and risks to autonomy. Like intelligence-in-general, AI can have final goals that are unpredictable and potentially misaligned with human goals. But humanity may be able to ensure ongoing instrumental goal alignment with AI, in a trustworthy partnership, by establishing and preserving a decentralized balance of power.
