The White House on Tuesday announced new efforts to guide federally supported research on artificial intelligence as the Biden administration seeks to better understand the risks and opportunities of the fast-evolving technology. fast.

Among the moves revealed by the administration was an adjustment to the US strategic plan for artificial intelligence study, last updated in 2019, to place greater emphasis on international cooperation with allies.

The US government and private sector in recent months have begun to weigh more openly about the possibilities and dangers of artificial intelligence.

Tools like the popular AI chatbot ChatGPT have sparked a wave of commercial investment in other AI tools that can convincingly write human-like text and generate new images, music, and computer code. The ease with which AI technology can be used to mimic humans has also prompted governments around the world to consider how it can take away jobs, trick people and spread misinformation.

The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy on Tuesday also issued a new request for public input on national priorities “to reduce AI risks, protect individual rights and safety, and harnessing AI to improve lives.”
