The Alignment Problem
Machine Learning and Human Values
Explore the potential risks of machine learning and AI systems in "The Alignment Problem." As these systems become increasingly sophisticated, they can make decisions for us, but what happens when they don't align with our goals or expectations? Discover how biases can emerge in these systems, and how the movement to fix them is taking shape. Author Brian Christian takes readers on a journey through the history and current state of machine learning, with a focus on the alignment problem and the ambitious plan to solve it before it's too late. This interdisciplinary work offers an unflinching reckoning with our biases and assumptions, making for a story that's both harrowing and hopeful.
