Seven significant developers of AI software have committed to using technology responsibly. This includes screening AI software for risks before deployment.
As US President Joe Biden said on Friday (local time), content created or modified by software should also be tagged with artificial intelligence. Participating companies include Google, Amazon, Facebook Meta Group and Microsoft. OpenAI, whose technology is behind the popular chatbot ChatGPT, is also there.
ChatGPT has been causing a stir since the end of last year because the chatbot can communicate at the level of human language. The program was trained from a novice OpenAI with a huge amount of data. It formulates a sentence by estimating how it can go on word for word. A disadvantage of this principle is that the program has no understanding of the content: for this reason it can also make conviction assertions that are completely false.
Artificial intelligence is not without discrimination
The fact that misinformation, including photos and videos that appear deceptively real, can be created and spread with the help of artificial intelligence software is one of the risks of the technology.
However, critics also point out that AI software is not free from bias and discrimination. The companies have vowed to address the issue. They also agreed to focus AI on big challenges such as cancer research and climate change.
AI has risks to society, the economy, and national security, Biden said — but also incredible opportunities. Biden said after a meeting with company officials at the White House that the voluntary commitments were a “promising step,” but that new laws and oversight would also be needed. Also joining the commitment are Anthropic and Inflection, which are developing AI assistants.
