AI Alignment Lab Achieves Major Milestone in Step Towards Agentic AI28.9.2023 08:00:00 EEST | Press release
Aligned AI, a leader in artificial intelligence (AI) research, has announced a groundbreaking AI advancement in misgeneralization, a critical challenge in the field of AI. It is the first to surpass a key benchmark called CoinRun by teaching an AI to “think” in human-like concepts. The technology underpinning the achievement opens the door to more precise, reliable, and controllable AI for a wide variety of real world applications. By teaching AI models to generalize in a manner more akin to agentic human cognition, Aligned AI’s innovation enables AI to correctly identify concepts across new situations and environments, reducing the need for prolonged production, testing, and retraining. Misgeneralization occurs when AI systems learn incorrect patterns and behaviors from their training data, and are not able to correctly adapt when presented with new information. This leads to unexpected, and often harmful, outcomes. Today’s foundation models suffer from varying degrees of misgeneraliz
