Beyond MAD?

The race for artificial general intelligence

Artificial intelligence research is a source of great technological advancement as well as ethical concern, as applied AI invades diverse aspects of human life. Yet true artificial general intelligence remains out of reach. Based on the history of deeply transformative technologies developed by multiple actors on the global stage and their consequences for global stability, we consider the possibility of artificial general intelligence arms races and propose solutions aimed at managing the development of such an intelligence without increasing the risks to global stability and humanity.


Keywords: arms races, AI Treaty, MAD, AGI, global coordination, AI safety
