Google’s Sundar Pichai, Microsoft’s Satya Nadella, and OpenAI’s Sam Altmann have been said to have a “moral” duty to protect the public. The white house has made it clear that it can continue to regulate this sector.
Recently initiated AI products like ChatGPT and Bard have captured the public’s imagination.
They offer ordinary users the ability to interact with so-called “generative AI” that can pull together information from multiple sources in seconds, write presentations, debug computer code, and even write poetry that looks believable as if humans could make it.
Its implementation has sparked a new debate about the role of AI in society and made the potential risks and benefits of the new technology tangible. The chief technology officers who met at the White House were told it was up to companies to “keep their products safe;” on Thursday, and they have been warned that the administration is open to new AI laws and regulations.
In a statement released after the meeting, Kamala Harris, US Vice President, announced that new technologies could threaten security, privacy, and civil rights, although they can also improve lives.
Fears Associated with AI Usage
It is feared that artificial intelligence will quickly replace humans’ jobs, and fear chatbots like ChatGPT and Bard are inaccurate and spreading misinformation.
There are also fears that generative AI may infringe copyright. Voice cloning AI could amplify fraud AI-generated videos can spread fake news.
Proponents like Bill Gates, however, have countered calls for a “pause” in AI by saying such a move would “not solve the problems” ahead.
Gates says focusing on getting the most out of AI development would be better.
