Call For Papers

Artificial Intelligence Safety and Security

Call for Book Chapters
The history of robotics and artificial intelligence in many ways is also the history of humanity’s attempts to control such technologies. From the Golem of Prague to the military robots of modernity, the debate continues as to what degree of independence such entities should have and how to make sure that they do not turn on us, its inventors. Numerous recent advancements in all aspects of research, development and deployment of intelligent systems are well publicized but safety and security issues related to AI are rarely addressed. This book is proposed to mitigate this fundamental problem. It will be comprised of chapters from leading AI Safety researchers addressing different aspects of the AI control problem as it relates to the development of safe and secure artificial intelligence. The book would be the first textbook to address challenges of constructing safe and secure advanced machine intelligence.

Contributions devoted to all aspects of AI safety and security are invited, in particular:
• Adversarial ML
• AI Failures
• Bad Actors/Malevolence
• Boxing/Confinement
• Drives/Goals
• Ethics/Law
• Explainability
• Friendliness Theory
• Openness/Secrecy
• Off-Switch
• Reward Engineering
• Self-Improvement
• Security/Control
• Singularity/Superintelligence
• Validation/Verification
• Value Alignment
• Weaponized/Military
• Wireheading

Submission Procedure
Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit their papers by email. Chapters and inquiries should be submitted to Dr. Roman Yampolskiy at Submissions should include authors' information (names, affiliations, emails, and short bios). Note: There are NO submission or acceptance fees for manuscripts submitted to this book for publication. All manuscripts are accepted based on a double-blind peer review editorial process.
