This page provides an overview of research at the intersection of the decision theory of Newcomb-like problems (including anthropics, naturalized induction, and other related topics) and artificial intelligence. Specifically, it lists papers, blog posts, etc. discussing the “implementation problem”: how do we implement decision theories in AIs? Conversely, what decision theories do different AI approaches implement?
