"Experiments in Machine Behavior: Cooperating with and through machines"
Human cooperation is fundamental to the success of our species. But emerging machine intelligence poses new challenges to human cooperation. This talk explores two interrelated problems: How can we humans cooperate *through* machines--that is, agree among ourselves on how machines should behave? And how can we cooperate *with* machines--that is, convince self-interested machines to cooperate with us. The talk will then propose an interdisciplinary agenda for understanding and improving our human-machine ecology.
