PCAST Working Group on Generative AI Invitations Public Enter


As a part of my duties on the Presidential Council of Advisors on Science and Expertise (PCAST), I’m co-chairing (with Laura Greene) a working group learning the impacts of generative synthetic intelligence know-how (which incorporates widespread text-based giant language fashions equivalent to ChatGPT or diffusion mannequin picture mills equivalent to DALL-E 2 or Midjourney, in addition to fashions for scientific purposes equivalent to protein design or climate prediction), each in science and in society extra broadly. To this finish, we can have public periods on these matters throughout our PCAST assembly subsequent week on Friday, Might 19, with shows by the next audio system, adopted by an intensive Q&A session:

  • AI enabling science:
  • AI and society:

The occasion might be livestreamed on the PCAST assembly web page. I’m personally very a lot wanting ahead to those periods, as I consider they are going to be of broad public curiosity.

In parallel to this, our working group is additionally soliciting public enter for submissions from the general public on methods to determine and promote the useful deployment of generative AI, and on how greatest to mitigate dangers. Our preliminary focus is on the difficult matter of methods to detect, counteract, and mitigate AI-generated disinformation and “deepfakes”, with out sacrificing the liberty of speech and public engagement with elected officers that’s wanted for a wholesome democracy to operate; sooner or later we may additionally difficulty additional requests centered round different facets of generative AI. Additional particulars of our request, and methods to put together a submission, could be discovered at this hyperlink.

We additionally encourage submissions to some extra requests for enter on AI-related matters by different businesses:

  1. The Workplace of Science Expertise and Coverage (OSTP) Request for Data on how automated instruments are getting used to surveil, monitor, and handle employees.
  2. The Nationwide Telecommunications and Data Administration (NTIA) request for touch upon AI accountability coverage.

Readers who want to know extra about present or ongoing federal AI coverage efforts may additionally have an interest within the following assets:

  • The White Home Blueprint for an AI Invoice of Rights lays out core aspirational ideas to information the accountable design and deployment of AI applied sciences.
  • The Nationwide Institute of Requirements and Expertise (NIST) launched the AI Threat Administration Framework to assist organizations and people characterize and handle the potential dangers of AI applied sciences.
  • Congress created the Nationwide Safety Fee on AI, which studied alternatives and dangers forward and the significance of guiding the event of AI in accordance with American values round democracy and civil liberties.
  • The Nationwide Synthetic Intelligence Initiative was launched to make sure U.S. management within the accountable growth and deployment of reliable AI and help coordination of U.S. analysis, growth, and demonstration of AI applied sciences throughout the Federal authorities.
  • In January 2023, the Congressionally mandated Nationwide AI Analysis Useful resource (NAIRR) Activity Drive launched an implementation plan for offering computational, knowledge, testbed, and software program assets to AI researchers affiliated with U.S organizations.
