DeepMind looks at controlling AI

DeepMind has launched a new Ethics and Society division, which aims to understand the impact of AI.

The unit will help technologists create ethical AI and direct the impact of AI in society to benefit users.

"The development of AI creates important and complex questions. Its impact on society is not something that should be left to chance," said DeepMind.

Prominent figures in the technology industry including Stephen Hawking and Elon Musk have warned of the dangers of creating an AI without ethical constraints.

Many fear that an AI with flawed ethical programming could turn against humans in a misguided attempt to fulfill its purpose.
