The Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence (AI2) was founded in 2014 with the singular focus of conducting high-impact research and engineering in the field of artificial intelligence, all for the common good. AI2 is the creation of Paul Allen, Microsoft co-founder, and is led by Dr. Oren Etzioni, a world-renowned researcher and professor in the field of AI and computer science.
The Machine-Intelligence Research Unit (MIRI) ensures that the creation of smarter-than-human intelligence has
a positive impact. Their modus operandi is specifying world-modeling that allows the agent’s physical state and the programmer’s desired outcomes to be located in the model.
