The White House announced on July 21 that leading artificial intelligence (AI) companies such as OpenAI, Google and Microsoft have pledged to build AI technology that is safe, secure and transparent. In addition, the White House also recognized other companies such as Amazon, Anthropic, Meta and Inflection for their commitment to AI security.
The Biden administration emphasized the responsibility of these companies in ensuring the safety of their products. It aims to harness the potential of AI while promoting the highest standards in its development.
Kent Walker, Google’s president of global affairs, recognized that achieving success in AI requires collaboration. He expressed his satisfaction at joining other leading AI companies in supporting these commitments and assured that they will continue to work together by sharing knowledge and best practices.
Some of the commitments include pre-release security testing for AI systems, sharing AI security best practices, investing in cyber security and protection against insider threats, and enabling third-party reporting of vulnerabilities in AI systems. Anna Makanju, OpenAI’s vice president of global affairs, said policy makers around the world are considering new rules for advanced AI systems.
In June, bipartisan US lawmakers introduced a bill to create an AI commission to address concerns in the emerging industry. The Biden administration says it is working with global partners such as Australia, Canada, France, Germany, India, Israel, Italy, Japan, Nigeria, the Philippines and the UK to establish an international framework for AI.
According to Microsoft President Brad Smith, the company supports all of President Biden’s voluntary commitments and has freely committed to additional practices consistent with these important objectives. With this, Microsoft aims to expand its safe and responsible AI practices and collaborate with other industry leaders.
