Seven leading technology companies have pledged to make artificial intelligence (AI) safer and more transparent, the White House announced.
The companies, which include Microsoft, OpenAI, Google, Meta, Amazon, Anthropic, and Inflection AI, have agreed to a set of voluntary commitments that include security testing of their AI systems by internal and external experts before their release and ensuring that people are able to spot AI by implementing watermarks.
Also, they agreed to publicly reporting AI capabilities and limitations on a regular basis and researching the risks such as bias, discrimination, and the invasion of privacy. The goal is for it to be easy for people to tell when online content is created by AI, the White House added.
“This is a serious responsibility, we have to get it right,” President Joe Biden said. “And there’s enormous, enormous potential upside as well.” The White House hopes that the commitments from these leading tech companies will help to mitigate some of these risks and ensure that AI is used for good.
