The CEOs of Google, OpenAI, and Microsoft are going to meet with the Vice President of the United States
According to a White House official, the chief executives of Microsoft, Google, Anthropic, and OpenAI are going to meet with the vice president of the United States and top officials of the White House on May 4 to discuss issues of artificial intelligence.
The concern behind this meeting is expressed by US President Joe Biden in an invitation obtained by Reuters to the CEOs, which stated that companies are liable to ensure the safety of the product before making it public.
Bias and worries that AI fraud and false information could flourish are among the issues raised by the field’s rapid advancement in AI technology.
As worries about artificial intelligence’s effects on education and national security mount, the Biden administration announced in April that it was collecting feedback from the public on suggested accountability mechanisms for AI systems.
The White House official who wished to remain anonymous stated that, among others, Biden’s chief of staff Jeff Zients, director of the National Economic Council Lael Brainard, deputy chief of staff Bruce Reed, secretary of commerce Gina Raimondo, and national security adviser Jake Sullivan would be present at the meeting.
The gathering will place special emphasis on the value of promoting technology “with protections that minimise risks and possible harms,” the official said.
A request for comment from the businesses did not immediately receive a response. As the most popular app for consumers in history with over one hundred million monthly active users, ChatGPT, an AI programme that recently caught the public’s attention for its capacity to write responses quickly to a variety of queries, has drawn the interest of U.S. lawmakers.
