Private firms have an ethical, moral, and legal responsibility to ensure that their AI products are safe and secure. At the same time, they must comply with current laws. This is stated by US Vice President Kamala Harris, reports Engadget.

In order to achieve greater guarantees regarding AI, the stateswoman met with the heads of Alphabet, Microsoft, OpenAI and Anthropic. According to the vice-president, generative AI technologies such as Bard, Bing Chat and ChatGPT can both help and harm the country. For example, they can solve some of the biggest challenges, but they can also be used to violate rights, create mistrust and undermine “faith in democracy”.

In this vein, Kamala Harris pointed to the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election as evidence that hostile countries will use technology to undermine democratic processes.

More details about the discussions at the meeting have not yet been released. But Bloomberg says the invitations discussed the risks associated with the development of AI, efforts to limit those risks and other ways the government can work with the private sector to safely implement AI.

It was previously reported that Elon Musk plans to launch TruthGPT generative artificial intelligence, which, according to the entrepreneur’s plans, should become a safer version of existing chatbots. In an interview with Fox News, he expressed concern about how this direction of the industry is developing. According to Musk, big-talking models learn to be “politically correct” or untruthful. Instead, his AI should be different.
