- Tech companies such as Adobe, IBM, Nvidia, Palantir and others support voluntary artificial intelligence (AI) commitments proposed by US President Joe Biden in an effort to ensure ethical use of AI.
- The White House works closely with the private sector to address the risks of AI and realize its benefits, underscoring a strong commitment to ethics and responsibility in its development and application.
- The Biden Administration seeks to collaborate with international allies to establish a global framework that promotes ethical standards and consistent regulations in the field of AI globally.
In a significant gesture of collaboration between the government and the private sector, large tech companies such as Adobe, IBM, Nvidia, Palantir, Stability, Salesforce, Scale AI and Cohere have endorsed the president’s proposed voluntary commitments on Artificial Intelligence (AI) of the United States, Joe Biden.
This support, officially announced yesterday, Tuesday, September 12, from the White House, marks an important turn in the search for ethical and responsible use of AI.
These technology companies have made specific commitments to prevent the misuse of AI for harmful purposes. This includes the development and implementation of rigorous guidelines to ensure ethics in the use of this technology.
The endorsement of tech giants such as OpenAI partners Google, OpenAI and Microsoft in July also highlights the industry’s unity around these principles.
The importance of public-private collaboration
White House Chief of Staff Jeff Zients led the presentation of these commitments during a press conference in which he highlighted the need to harness the benefits of AI while addressing its risks.
“We are working closely with the private sector and making use of all available resources to achieve this goal.”Zients stated.
This collaboration demonstrates a clear commitment by the Biden administration to working alongside tech companies to ensure an ethical and responsible approach to the development and use of AI.
Although these commitments are considered a stopgap measure, given the slow progress in Congress on AI legislation, the White House is taking proactive steps to address this issue.
The development of an executive order related to AI is a strong indication of the administration’s commitment to regulating and overseeing this technology.
In addition to the measures taken at the domestic level, the Biden Administration seeks to collaborate with international allies, including Australia, Canada, France, Germany, India, Israel, Italy, Japan, Nigeria, the Philippines and the United Kingdom.
The goal is to create a global framework that addresses the challenges and opportunities of AI internationally, promoting ethical standards and consistent regulations around the world.
