The White House Has Unveiled An AI Plan Ahead Of Meeting With Tech CEOs

The Biden administration is set to unveil a series of initiatives that will aim to ensure that artificial intelligence (AI) improves people’s lives without endangering their rights and safety.

As part of these efforts, Vice President Kamala Harris is scheduled to meet with CEOs from Alphabet, Anthropic, Microsoft, and OpenAI to discuss the risks and responsibilities involved in AI development.

The initiatives include an investment of $140 million to establish seven new AI research institutes and the issuance of guidance on using AI tools by federal agencies. Additionally, top AI developers have committed to participating in a public evaluation of their systems at DEF CON in August.

Despite the potential benefits of AI, President Joe Biden has warned of its potential to harm national security and destabilize the economy.

The development of OpenAI’s ChatGPT chatbot has also raised ethical and societal concerns. The company has been secretive about the data its AI systems have been trained on, making it difficult for outsiders to assess concerns regarding bias, false answers, or copyright infringement. Although, theoretically, a disclosure law could force AI providers to open up their systems to third-party scrutiny, it may not be practical for companies to provide greater transparency after the fact.

Ultimately, the government will have to decide whether to support corporations’ existing AI work or demand they start anew, which could have significant implications.
