Ca­pa­bil­ity con­trol method

TagLast edit: 17 May 2021 13:12 UTC by Pablo

A capability control method is a method that attempt to prevent undesirable outcomes from artificial intelligence by restricting what the AI can do. Capability control methods encompass AI boxing, incentive methods (including anthropic capture), stunting, and tripwires (Bostrom 2014: 129-138). Capability control methods may be contrasted with motivation selection methods, which attempt instead to restrict what the AI wants to do.
