Nanny AI is a form of Artificial General Intelligence proposed by Ben Goertzel to delay the Singularity while protecting and protect and nurturenurturing humanity. Nanny AI has beenwas proposed to reduceas a means of reducing the risks associated with the Singularity by delaying it until a predetermined time has passed, predetermined conditions are met, or permanently. Delaying the Singularity would allow for further research and reflection about our values and time to built a friendly artificial intelligence.

  • A somewhat smarter than humanmildly superhuman Artificial General Intelligence
  • A global surveillance network tied to the Nanny AI
  • ControlFinal control of all robots given to the Nanny AI
  • To be reluctant to change its goals, increase its intelligence, or act against humanity's extrapolated desires
  • To be able to reinterpret its goals at human prompting
  • To prevent any technological development that would hinder it
  • To yield control to another AI at a predetermined time

Ben Goertzel suggests that a Nanny AI may be a necessary evil to prevent disasters from developing technology. Hetechnology, though he acknowledges that constructing a Nanny AI will be risky, but that it may be better than the alternative.poses risks of its own.

In a paper by Luke Muehlhauser and Anna Salamon to be published in The Singularity Hypothesis, it was suggested that programming a safe Nanny AI will require solving most, if not all, the problems that must be solved in programming a Friendly Artificial Intelligence.
