The question of whether Oracles – or just keeping an AGI forcibly confined - are safer than fully free AGIs has been the subject of debate for a long time. Armstrong, Sandberg and Bostrom discuss Oracle AI safety at length in their Thinking inside the box: using and controlling an Oracle AI. In the paper, the authors propose a generic theoretical conceptual architecture to create such a system and review various methods which might be used to measure thean Oracle's accuracy. They also try to shed some light on some weaknesses and dangers that can emerge on the human side (suchside, such as psychological vulnerabilities which can be exploited by the Oracle through social engineering, for example). Someengineering. The paper discusses ideas for physical security – also known as “boxing” - are also discussed(“boxing”), as well as which questions may be safeproblems involved with trying to ask, utility indifference, and many other factors. The paper’sprogram the AI to only answer questions. In the end, the paper reaches the cautious conclusion that Oracles – or AI boxing concepts in general - areof Oracle AIs probably being safer than fully free agent AIs has been a subject of debate for a long time.AGIs.

As such, an Oracle could determine that it might answer more accurately and easily to a certain question if it turned all matter outside the box into computronium, therefore killing all the existing life.

He rests on the idea that anything considered "intelligent" must choose the correct course of action among all actions avaliable. That means that the Oracle will have many possible things to believe, although very few of them are correct. Therefore believing the correct thing means some method was used to select the correct belief from the many incorrect beliefs. By definition, this is an optimization process which has a goal of selecting correct beliefs.
