Re: It's Got To Be Physical
Agreed...although a wrecking ball or big axe probably work as well.

It's Got To Be Physical
Software can ALWAYS be circumvented, the only true fail-safe with AI will be physical circuit breakers to cut the power.

Re: The Google "Kill Switch" for AI
@jastroff - I have the Tide button among others.  My 3 year old son thinks they are toys - they should have a warning;  Keep out of reach of children!

Re: The Google "Kill Switch" for AI
Maybe we need a Panic Button for Amazon's Alexa - when it start delivering boxes of Tide enough to fill up every room.

A panic button is something Amazon would never think of. Two very different companies.

Re: The Google "Kill Switch" for AI
Well it looks like they've done the math to prove it can be done. I'll be curious to see how it translates into reality.

The Google "Kill Switch" for AI
It is about time that the means to stop out of control AI is found.

I was thinking something simple, like a tape-loop of William Shatner arguing with the AI.

If television has taught me anything, it was the Captain Kirk could talk any computer to death.
