Workshop @ PACTMAN: Trust, Privacy and Consent in Future Pervasive Environments Symposium 10-11 December 2018. Event Page.

Alien AI – Mission Sheet

“An Alien Intelligence has been discovered. As it happens, it is an Artificial form of Alien Intelligence emerged as a colony of spawn-like creatures. It is commonly accepted that entities exhibiting Artificial Intelligent (AI) characteristics can be described as intelligent agents, that is systems that perceive and act in some environment. However, being an Alien form of AI, the exact criterion for intelligence is difficult to establish and the environment of origin unknown. Our goal is to explore and specify this very criterion of intelligence and, from that, explore the potential attitudes and behavior of Alien AI in a range of environments.”

This workshop is part of the Values in Computing (ViC) research programm and facilitated by Marie & Steve from Team ViC. ViC receives support from the EPSRC.
