Multiple films have featured how intelligent machines might disobey orders from humans and eventually take over the world. In the opinion of Stuart Russell, professor of electrical engineering and computer science at UC Berkeley, the scenarios could become a reality. But he also said the situation is fixable if we fundamentally change how we build artificial intelligence (AI) systems.
AI algorithms play a huge part in today's world. They also continue to be refined to perform various tasks better. For example, Hui Chen, professor of finance at MIT Sloan School, has researched applying economic concepts to machine learning algorithms that will make the algorithms "smarter."
