OpenAI CEO Calls on Government for Safety Standards

Following the abundance of emotional appeals against the danger surrounding AI, ChatGPT’s chief executive just gave their fair share in a subcommittee hearing to the United States Senate. For the past few decades, scientists, engineers, and even figures in pop culture have expressed their concerns over the power of AI and specifically the detrimental effects such a technology can have on human civilization. Earlier this year, a petition pleading for the government to take legal action over artificial intelligence was signed by the likes of Elon Musk, Steve Wozniak, Andrew Yang, and more. Now, OpenAI’s CEO, Sam Altman, provided his own input, giving a warning of the ramifications of unregulated AI to the United States Congress.

In his first appearance ahead of the Senate, Altman gave the grim statement, “If this technology goes wrong, it can go quite wrong”. As the chief executive over several popular intuitive models such as ChatGPT and DALL·E, Altman continued to stress the significance of safety standards for artificial intelligence; he believes the federal government should establish a new agency tailored to the issue, where licenses would be given to ensure compliance over any legal standards that should be controlled. Any of these issues could be bias, election influence, news coverage, intellectual-property theft, and more. However, when it came to the controversial labor market, the CEO projected that although some jobs will certainly become automated, these technologies will open the door to new jobs that can benefit society on a greater magnitude. Regardless, although artificial intelligences pose several threats to the human way of living, it seems the government is taking small steps to guarantee AI’s treatment as a “tool” rather than a “creature”.
