worldsfeed Int’l News Desk: On Thursday, US President Joe Biden held a two-hour meeting with CEOs from top artificial intelligence (AI) companies, including Google and Microsoft, to discuss the risks of AI. The meeting focused on ensuring the safety of AI products before deployment, with a frank and constructive discussion on the need for companies to be more transparent with policymakers about their AI systems.
Among the AI products discussed was generative AI, which has gained much attention this year, with apps like ChatGPT at the forefront. Biden himself has used ChatGPT and was briefed on its capabilities. Sam Altman, CEO of OpenAI, noted that all companies present had similar views on regulation.
During the meeting, concerns were raised about the risks associated with AI, such as confidentiality breaches, employment discrimination, and misinformation. Vice President Kamala Harris emphasized that it is the legal responsibility of companies to ensure the safety of their AI products, which have the potential to improve lives but can also raise security and privacy concerns.
OpenAI’s ChatGPT is currently at the forefront of AI technology, with huge investment from Microsoft. It uses generative AI technology to generate new data by gathering information, enabling users to ask questions and receive assistance with various tasks, including writing emails and CVs, and even providing suggestions on gifts for one’s spouse. However, critics have raised concerns about the potential misuse of such technology to spread fake information, leading to the destruction of humanity.
While some argue that sharing such technology with the world may speed up its development and spread, Sam Altman believes that it will ultimately bring prosperity to the world. Google has also launched its own chatbot named Bard, which competes with OpenAI’s ChatGPT and is based on the Large Language Model of LaMDA. Tesla CEO Elon Musk is also reportedly set to launch his own AI chatbot, named TruthGPT.
