The meeting discussed the issue of the moral obligation to protect society from the dangerous aspects of the development of artificial intelligence.
This is reported by the BBC.
On Thursday, the leaders of the main players in the market of revolutionary research in the field of AI came to the meeting at the White House:
from Microsoft and
from Open AI - the company that developed the popular chatbot ChatGPT.
Politicians have told entrepreneurs that they have a "fundamental responsibility" to make sure their products are safe before they go public and put them into widespread use.
The White House also noted that the presidential administration does not exclude the introduction of new legislation that would regulate research in the field of AI.
According to Sam Altman, all present entrepreneurs, surprisingly, did not have disagreements regarding the regulation of the industry in the future.
They also all agreed to open testing of their AI systems at the DEF CON cybersecurity conference this August.
Recent AI-powered products, such as Google's ChatGPT and Bard chatbots, have quickly become popular with users around the world.
These computer programs, designed to simulate a real dialogue with the user, in response to a request look for information on the Internet and compose an answer formulated as naturally as possible.
The proliferation of chatbots has raised concerns that if AI technology continues to develop unchecked, it could lead to dangerous consequences for humans, from uncontrolled flows of misinformation, the spread of fakes and copyright infringements to large-scale job closures and even the loss of control over civilization.
After the meeting with the entrepreneur, the White House issued a statement that it wants to strengthen the government segment of the AI market and is investing $140 million in the creation of seven new research institutes.
On Monday, the scientist
, known as the "Godfather of AI", resigned from Google to be able to talk about the dangers associated with artificial intelligence without looking at corporate rules.

In March, entrepreneur Elon Musk
and Apple co-founder
signed an open letter about the risks associated with AI .
They called for a pause in artificial intelligence research until laws governing the industry are developed.
Other specialists, such as
, call to focus on the benefits associated with the development of AI, and not to stop research.
In the United States, there are also voices urging to refrain from excessive regulation and artificial restrictions on the development of this industry, so that China does not overtake America in the race of artificial intelligence.
