Biden Urges Tech Firms To Ensure AI Products Are Safe

President Joe Biden said it remains to be seen if artificial intelligence (AI) is dangerous, but that he believes technology companies must ensure their products are safe before releasing them to the public, Zeke Miller reported for AP.

“AI can help deal with some very difficult challenges like disease and climate change, but it also has to address the potential risks to our society, to our economy, to our national security,” Biden told the group, which includes academics, as well as executives from Microsoft and Google, Chris Megerian and Matt O’Brien, also reported for AP.



AI burst to the forefront in the national and global conversation in recent months after the release of the popular ChatGPT AI chatbot, which helped spark a race among tech giants to unveil similar tools, while raising ethical and societal concerns about technology that can generate convincing prose or imagery that looks like it’s the work of humans.

While tech companies should always be responsible for the safety of their products, Biden’s reminder reflects something new — the emergence of easy-to-use AI tools that can generate manipulative content and realistic-looking synthetic media known as deep fakes, said Rebecca Finley, CEO of the industry-backed Partnership on AI.
