Mission Statement

To ensure that the creation of smarter-than-human intelligence benefits society.

Description

In 1965, I.J. Good proposed that machines would one day be smart enough to make themselves smarter. Having made themselves smarter, they would spot still further opportunities for improvement, quickly leaving human intelligence far behind. He called this the "intelligence explosion. Later authors have called it the "technological singularity" or simply ""the Singularity" .

The Singularity Institute aims to reduce the risk of a catastrophe resulting from an intelligence explosion. We do research, education, and conferences. Below, we make the case for taking artificial intelligence (AI) risks seriously, and suggest some strategies to reduce those risks.
