US President Joe Biden declared on Tuesday that the security of artificial intelligence remains uncertain, calling on tech companies to ensure the safety of their products before releasing them to the public.

During a meeting with science and technology advisers, Biden acknowledged that AI could be beneficial in addressing problems like disease and climate change. However, she stressed the importance of addressing potential risks to society, national security, and the economy.

At the start of a meeting with the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology, he stated that technology companies must ensure the safety of their products before making them available to the public. When asked about the potential dangers of AI, he replied: “Yet to be determined. There is the possibility. “

According to the president, social networks have already demonstrated the negative impact that technologies can have in the absence of adequate measures to protect against them.

“In the absence of protection, we see the impact on mental health, self-image, feelings and hopelessness, especially among young people” .

He reiterated his call for the US Congress to pass nonpartisan privacy laws that limit the personal data collected by technology companies, ban advertising to children and prioritize health and safety in product development.

The Center for Artificial Intelligence and Digital Policy, a technology ethics organization, recently urged the US Federal Trade Commission to block OpenAI from releasing new commercial versions of GPT-4, a language model that has both shocked and alarmed users for their human-like ability to create written responses to prompts.
