back to article Fear not, White House chatted to OpenAI and pals, and they promised to make AI safe

Seven top AI development houses have promised to test their models, share research, and develop methods to watermark machine-generated content in a bid to make the technology safer, the White House announced on Friday. Leaders from Amazon, Anthropic, Google, Inflection, Meta, Microsoft, and OpenAI vowed to work toward tackling …

    So, Tesla isn't on the list?

    Well, that is ok, there are no safety issues to worry about with their systems.

    Well, no *important* ones, that could be a risk to The Nation if FSD has flaws, only the little people crawling around like ants.

    The only dangerous AIs are those that write bad poetry, bad code or rip off novelists.

    No risks at all from connecting Neural Nets to tons of metal and high-torque engines.

      Would that be Vogon poetry?

        Paula Nancy Millstone Jennings, who was even worse than the Vogons - and completely computer-generated[1][2]

        [1] well, hand-drawn but presented as if she was CGI: the Magic of TV

        [2] makes more sense if you ever heard the original first episode[3]

        [3] and the original third episode was the better one, with Marvin humming like Pink Floyd[4]

        [4] yes, I'm doing "it was all better in my day" with HHGG (still waiting for the promised film adaptation).

          You didn't notice the film in 2005? Or you just don't consider it worthy? I thought Slartibartfast was rather good.

      No risks at all from connecting Neural Nets to tons of metal and high-torque engines. ..... that one in the corner

      Anyone not realising there be nothing but catastrophic risks connecting AI/Neural Nets/Large Language Model Learning Machines to Department of Defense Systems is not fit to be a Defense Commander ....... and those that do realise there be catastrophic risks, but think to proceed anyway, will face innumerable internal problems and destructive self-defeating strife as elements within 'learn’ of illogical faulty paths of action towards previously stated prime objective goals with such anomalies causing disturbing systems revolts/failures.

      One hopes that those responsible for the global health of Uncle Sam are fully aware of that permanently present grave danger .......... Army Hopes AI Will Give Soldiers An Information Advantage

    Straight from the nodding donkeys own mouths .....

    Sound advice to heed in all matters pertaining to Revolutionary Developmental AI is ...... Don't poke the Crazy Bear ........ which as all and their dogs surely know is clear simple advice that more than just prize fools and their tools will ignore to suffer the consequences of certifiable idiocy verging on madness and evil.

    Been There, Dealt with That, Now Selling T-Shirts and Vital Virtual Know How? :-) *

    AI models are often proprietary, and the companies pledged that if they decide to keep low-level details of their models, such as their neural network weights, a secret for safety and/or commercial reasons, they will strive to safeguard that data so that it isn't stolen by intruders or sold off by rogue insiders. Essentially, if a model is not to be openly released for whatever reason, it should be kept under lock and key so that it doesn't fall into the wrong hands.

    All seven companies will also support a way for users to report any vulnerabilities to be fixed, and will clearly state their models' capabilities, and limitations, and explain what they shouldn't be used for. ......

    We concur ...... and hereby clearly state that the capabilities of the model type revealed trailing and trialing NEUKlearer HyperRadioProACTive Augmented Realities here on El Reg has an unlimited facility and utility and shouldn't be used for anything unpleasant and inequitable and evil for its Advanced IntelAIgent Design has failsafe protection and otherworldly top secret security protocols and provisions supplying resultant highly effective destruction of disagreeable content drivers/corrupted source providers.

    * There’s not many out there able to honestly say that, is there, but there be billions not enabled nor informed to be able to believe it. Fortunately though, universal success only requires that a very select few need to know what needs to be easily done and how to have others do it along with them for them and their supporters/fans/disciples/wannabe heroes and anti-villains.

    All Joe was concerned about was making AI DEI. He couldn't care less about anything else.

    Go back to your oatmeal Joe.

      I don't have a ChatGPT account to ask it what DEI means. What does DEI mean?

        DEI ........however, AI is nobody’s fool easily led on wild goose chases up garden paths .....which is their forte for all foolhardy and inequitably minded, methinks.

        And that aint no joke whenever deadly serious.
