OpenAI is making strides towards responsible AI development by teaming up with Common Sense Media, a non-profit focused on children’s media and technology.
According to TechCrunch, this partnership aims to address concerns about AI safety and transparency, particularly for young users.
“OpenAI and Common Sense Media will develop educational materials and guidelines for parents, educators, and young adults on the safe and responsible use of AI.”
The AI firm will curate a selection of “family-friendly” GPT chatbot apps in its GPT Store, based on Common Sense Media’s evaluation standards.
It is worth noting that the partnership aims to bridge the knowledge gap between younger generations and adults regarding AI tools like ChatGPT.
“AI offers incredible benefits for families and teens, and our partnership with Common Sense will further strengthen our safety work, ensuring that families and teens can use our tools with confidence,” noted Sam Altman, the CEO of OpenAI.
OpenAI faces pressure from regulators to ensure its AI products benefit society, following concerns about data collection, misinformation, and potential harm.
The firm acknowledged the limitations of its AI tools, including factual errors, bias, and the potential for misuse.
This partnership represents a positive step towards responsible AI development.
By focusing on education, transparency, and curated content, OpenAI and Common Sense Media hope to build trust and minimize potential risks for young users.
However, it’s important to remember that AI tools still have limitations and require careful use.
