President Joe Biden said recently that leading tech firms have agreed to comply with artificial intelligence (AI) safeguards crafted by the White House, Matt O’Brien and Zeke Miller reported for the Associated Press (AP).

Amazon, Google, Meta, Microsoft and other companies that are leading the development of AI technology acceded to the safeguards that the White House said are needed to manage the “enormous” promise and risks posed by the technology.

Some of the commitments call for third-party oversight of the workings of the next generation of AI systems, though they don’t detail who will audit the technology or hold the companies accountable.

Biden announced that his administration has secured voluntary commitments from seven US companies meant to ensure that their AI products are safe before they release them.

“We must be clear-eyed and vigilant about the threats emerging technologies can pose,” Biden said, adding that the companies have a “fundamental obligation” to ensure their products are safe.

“Social media have shown us the harm that powerful technology can do without the right safeguards in place,” Biden added. “These commitments are a promising step, but we have a lot more work to do together.”
