On the Meaning of AI Safety

Research output: Working paper


There is a growing urgency and global demand to address Artificial Intelligence (AI) safety. But swift and sustained progress is unlikely to emerge without a shared understanding of what it means for the use of AI to be safe. This paper advances a comprehensive definition of AI safety, followed by an exploration of the fundamental concepts that underpin this definition. The aim is to contribute to a meaningful and inclusive discussion and further the public discourse on AI safety.
