San Francisco, January 30: Facing intense scrutiny and government probes, OpenAI has announced to partner nonprofit organisation Common Sense Media to minimise AI risks for young adults. They will initially collaborate on AI guidelines and education materials for parents, educators and young people, as well as a curation of family-friendly GPTs in the GPT Store based on Common Sense ratings and standards.
"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," said Sam Altman, CEO of OpenAI. OpenAI is facing pressure from regulators to prove that its GenAI-powered apps, including ChatGPT, are not detrimental to society. ‘A Step in the Wrong Direction’: After Epic Games CEO Time Sweeney and Spotify CEO Daniel Ek, Microsoft Also Criticises Changes to Apple App Store in EU.
The Italian regulator on Monday notified OpenAI about breaching European data privacy law, giving the ChatGPT developer 30 days to respond to the allegations. "Together, Common Sense and OpenAI will work to make sure that AI has a positive impact on all teens and families," said James P Steyer, founder and CEO of Common Sense Media.
"Our guides and curation will be designed to educate families and educators about safe, responsible use of ChatGPT, so that we can collectively avoid any unintended consequences of this emerging technology,” Steyer added.
