A group of 200 major technology companies have joined efforts in the United States to promote responsible AI practices. The American AI Safety Institute (AISIC) consortium will include Apple, Meta, Google, and Microsoft as members.
“Mitigate risks and harness the enormous potential of artificial intelligence”
Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo just announced several New members From the group he said so He will be assigned to carry out the indicated procedures Under President Biden's sweeping executive order on artificial intelligence.
The U.S. government has an important role to play in setting standards and developing the tools we need to mitigate risks and harness the enormous potential of artificial intelligence.
Raymundo said in a statement.
Biden's October executive order was far-reaching. This consortium will therefore focus on developing guidelines For “red collaboration, capacity assessments, risk management, safety and security, and watermarking synthetic content.”
“Red team” is a cybersecurity term dating back to the Cold War. Refers to simulations in which the enemy is designated as a "red team." In this case, The enemy will be an AI bent on “behaving” badly. People involved in this practice will try to trick AI into doing bad things, like revealing credit card numbers, through direct hacking. Once people know how to break the system, they can create better protections.
Watermarking synthetic content is another important aspect of Biden's original order. Consortium members will develop guidelines and procedures To ensure that users can easily recognize AI-generated materials.
This is expected to reduce deepfakes and misinformation generated by artificial intelligence. Digital watermarks are not yet widely adopted, Although this program will "facilitate and help standardize" the technical specifications underpinning the practice.
The consortium is just getting started, though the Commerce Department says it represents the largest collection of test and evaluation teams in the world.
