Biden Administration Strikes Deal with Tech Giants on AI Risks

2 Mins read

The Biden administration announced on Friday that it has reached an agreement with several major US technology companies to address potential risks associated with artificial intelligence (AI). However, the agreement did not directly tackle the issue of training AI systems, which has become a significant concern due to recent copyright infringement lawsuits filed against AI companies.

The White House revealed that seven leading companies in AI, including, Meta Platforms, Microsoft (and its investee firm OpenAI), Google (a subsidiary of Alphabet), and privately held companies Inflection and Anthropic, have made commitments regarding the future of AI. According to a statement from the White House, these commitments emphasize the importance of safety, security, and trust in the development of responsible AI.

Regarding safety, the companies have pledged to conduct internal and external security testing of AI systems before their release. They have also committed to sharing information about possible risks associated with AI.

Security Commitments in AI Development

The recent announcement by the White House regarding voluntary commitments from major companies in the field of artificial intelligence (AI) has raised questions about their level of adherence. While these commitments aim to enhance security and protect crucial information regarding AI models, the enforceability of these pledges remains uncertain.

It is important for lawmakers to act swiftly in crafting legislation to address transparency, privacy protection, and comprehensive research on the various risks associated with generative AI. Paul Barrett, deputy director of the Center for Business and Human Rights at New York University’s Stern School of Business, emphasized the significance of this, given that the voluntary commitments are not legally binding.

The agreement facilitated by the White House is distinct from potential efforts in Congress to introduce regulatory laws for AI. In addition to this agreement, the White House is actively developing an executive order and bipartisan legislation to further address the topic.

Microsoft President Brad Smith expressed support for these commitments, highlighting the potential contribution they could make towards developing an international code of conduct for AI.

Notably absent from the guest list for this event was Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla and founder of xAI. It remains unclear whether Musk or representatives from his companies were invited to the White House gathering.

Twitter and Tesla have yet to respond to inquiries about Musk’s participation in the event.
