Prof. Stuart Russell will offer a perspective on recent developments in AI and prospects for further advances, with a particular emphasis on the importance of expressive, structured, symbolic representations of both knowledge and behavior. He will also argue for a revision in the standard model of AI to allow for uncertainty over objectives, as part of a broader research agenda aimed at developing AI systems that are provably safe and beneficial by design, no matter how capable they become.
