First do no harm.

Editors’ humble opinion based on AI technology thought leaders over the past 80 years… we are all now in extremely deep trouble. ANALYZE THE DATA.

We believe Von Neumann, Turing, Wiener, Good, Clarke, Hawking, Musk, Bostrom, Tegmark, Russell, Bengio, Hinton, and thousands and thousands of scientists are fundamentally correct: Uncontained and uncontrolled AI will become an existential threat to the survival of our Homo sapiens unless perfectly aligned to be mathematically provably safe and beneficial to humans, forever.

VERY GOOD READS FROM RESPECTED SOURCES!
The technical problem of safe AI is relatively well understood. The solutions are currently unknown. We need mathematically provable guarantees of safe AI.

The road to wisdom? Well, it’s plain
And simple to express:
Err
and err
and err again,
but less
and less
and less.
