UNITED STATES: The chief executives of Alphabet Inc.’s Google, Microsoft, Anthropic, and OpenAI will meet U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris and some senior administration officials on Thursday to discuss crucial artificial intelligence (AI) issues, a White House official said.

President Joe Biden “expects that companies like yours must make sure their products are safe before making them available to the public,” as per sources who saw the CEOs’ invitation.

Concerns about fast-developing AI technology include privacy concerns, worries, and the bias that it can spread fraud and false information.

In April, Biden stated that it is too soon to tell whether AI is dangerous, but he emphasised that technology companies had a duty to make sure their products were secure. He claimed that social media has already demonstrated the damage that strong technology may cause in the absence of adequate protections.

In addition, the administration has urged feedback from the public on suggested accountability measures for AI systems as concerns about their effects on national security and education mount.

In a blog post on Monday, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy and White House Domestic Policy Council representatives discussed how technology can present a significant risk to workers.

The White House official who wished to remain unnamed stated that, among others, Biden’s chief of staff Jeff Zients, deputy chief of staff Bruce Reed, national security adviser Jake Sullivan, director of the National Economic Council Lael Brainard, and secretary of commerce Gina Raimondo will be present at the meeting on Thursday. The businesses did not immediately respond to a request for comments.

ChatGPT, an AI programme that has recently grasped the public’s attention for its capability to write answers swiftly to a broad range of questions, in particular has drawn attention from U.S. lawmakers as it has thrived to be the quickest-growing consumer application in history with over 100 million active users each month.

Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, stated in a televised interview last month that “I think we should be cautious with AI, and I think there should be some government oversight because it is a danger to the public.”
