The White House has announced new actions to promote responsible artificial intelligence innovations that will protect Americans’ rights and safety. We have recently discussed some of the issues and concerns with certain aspects of AI. There was the conversation regarding ChatGPT as well as the news of a data breach at OpenAI. However, there is no denying that it is a powerful technology that seems to have cemented its spot as a tool of the future.

In order to capitalize on the opportunities AI presents, the risks it poses first have to be mitigated. The American Government recently met with CEOs from Alphabet, Anthropic, Microsoft and OpenAI. Responsible innovations in AI means ensuring it serves the public good while protecting society, security and the economy. Companies also have a fundamental responsibility to make sure their products are safe before they are made public.

The meeting’s focus was to underscore those responsibilities and emphasize the importance of driving responsible, trustworthy and ethical innovation. This will be done by implementing safeguards that mitigate the risks and potential harms to individuals and society.

Biden’s administration have said they are actively working to address national security concerns raised by AI. Such as:

  • Cybersecurity
  • Biosecurity
  • Safety

Research and Development

The National Science Foundation have announced $140 million in funding to launch seven new AI Research Institutes. These institutes work on bringing together efforts from across various institutions that pursue AI advances that are ethical, trustworthy, responsible and able to serve the public good.

These new institutes will also allow further AI development in critical areas, such as:

  • Agriculture
  • Climate
  • Cybersecurity
  • Education
  • Energy
  • Public Health

Public Assessments

There will also be an independent commitment from AI developers to publicly evaluate AI systems. This will mean models will be thoroughly evaluated by thousands of community partners and AI experts.

AI Policies

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) will be releasing draft policy guidance on government use of AI systems. There will be specific policies for federal departments and agencies to follow to ensure American peoples’ rights and safety are safeguarded. This draft guidance will be released for public comments in the summer.
