Microsoft calls observing AI always under human control

Microsoft CEO Brad Smith has urged people to get behind artificial intelligence because of its shortcomings and risks, and asked lawmakers to put safety nets on AI.

He expressed his greatest concern about the control of this technology in electricity grids, water supply and other essential infrastructure, stressing that “we must always ensure that AI remains under human control”.

In a blog post, Smith stated that in a democratic society, one of Microsoft’s founding principles is that “no man is above the law;” there is no government above the law; and no production or art shall be above the law.

Thus, the technology leader came to the conclusion that “the people who design and operate AI systems cannot be held accountable unless their decisions and actions are subject to the rule of law.”

To address some of the current and emerging AI issues, Microsoft offers a five-point plan that aims to generate public policy, laws and regulations for this technology.

These are the “implementation and pressure of the new government’s AI security framework”; “require effective targeted security for AI systems controlling critical infrastructure”; “to develop a broad legal and regulatory framework for technology architecture”; “to promote transparency and ensure access to academic and non-profit AI”; and “new public-private partnerships seeking to use AI as an effective tool for the inevitable social challenges that arise from new technologies.”

On the other hand, the CEO of OpenAI, which is behind ChatGPT, Sam Altman, told the US Senate last week that the use of artificial intelligence to interfere with the integrity of elections is a “significant cause for concern”, so it is. it is necessary to arrange it as soon as possible.

The debate about AI has been raging on Capitol Hill in recent months, as some lawmakers believe that this technology could endanger people’s lives and livelihoods, hindering medical and financial advances.

Others worry about the power of basic models of AI chatbots, such as ChatGPT and GPT-4, which work as co-pilots in people’s lives and improving their productivity, replacing them in the functions they previously performed. a., or not to discriminate or violate civil rights.

These concerns have sparked a series of meetings with senior US government officials, including a recent visit to the White House by the CEOs of Google’s OpenAI, Microsoft and Alphabet, who met with President Joe Biden to discuss these issues.
